Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, my 7 years of studying in France probably totalled less than €2000 of fees. And it was not because I went to second-grade schools.

So yes, I think it is huge to pay $6800 for one year. It's one third of the median income!

I guess there is a major cultural difference there. It doesn't cost that much to train as a medical practitioner here. But then, they do not demand as crazy fees once they are trained. This may regrettably change as neo-liberalism and individualism are catching here. But I am quite attached to that system where you don't start life burdened with debt.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
