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.

"Finacially,I have brother and sister in college also,so it was really hard, so we'd just stand up and come to Brookdale, save money."

Like Vanessa, more students maybe squeeze out of their dream school of college in general, for a public 4 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 talk about the very poor, but now many middle class students can’t go. The tuition is just too high."

I knew education report card found that family's making less than 19,000 dollars a year dowed out 39% of their income on public college cost in 1999, that number jumped to wopping 55% in 2007,the share for middle class family's making less than 19,000 dollars also claimed from 18% to a hefty 25%, while families making more than 90,000 saw the lowest increase, from 7 to 9%.

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

I think it's gonna be very interesting to see if States that have relatively high in-state tuitions, if they're not going to loose students to other states that have lower costs.

I know money is still always gonna be an issue.

Vanessa's college dreams utimately will be determined by her family's bottom line.
