19-year-old Vanessa Massarotti was accepted at her top choice private four-year university, but for economic reasons, had to enroll instead in Brookdale Community college.


* brother and sister in college also so, it was really hard, so, we I just stand up and come to Brookdale, save money.


Like Vanessa, more students may be squeezed out of their dream school or college in general for a public four-year-college; tuition has skyrocketed from $1,600 20 years ago to nearly 7,000 now, for a private school, from 8,000 to 25,000 dollars.


For a long time, we just thought about they are poor, but now many middle class students can’t go. The tuition is just too high.


A new education report * found that families making less than 19,000 dollars a year dowed out 39% of their income on public college cost in 1999, that number jumped to a whopping 55% in 2007. The share for middle class families making less than 90,000 dollars also climbed from 18 to a hefty 25%. While families making more than 90,000 saw the lowest increase, form 7 to 9%.


And the problem is only likely to get worse, historically education exports say during tough economic times, states tend to cut college budgets which sends tuitions out.


I think it’s can be very interesting to see * states, that have relatively high instate tuitions, if they’re not gonna lose students to other states that have lower costs.


I knew money is still always gonna being issue.


Vanessa’s college dream ultimately will be determined by her family’s bottom line.
