When calculating the cost of education living expenses play a critical role. On an average, a student spends approx $15000 – 18000/year. But the expenses also depend on the place where a student stays i.e. if a student stays in metropolitan city like New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, etc the expenses could go up to $20000 in comparison to a student studying in a suburban area where the expenses around $10000 to $12000 / year. Living in suburban areas add up the students transportation cost. But colleges do provide transportation passes for the same. Living afar in an outlying place would result in more time consumption.
