Today we are celebrating the launch of College Abacus’ new mobile site! We visited collegeabacus.org on our phone to find out what Andy’s net price would have been at three different Illinois colleges - a career college, community college, and state four-year university.
Even though Andy is stuck in Saturday detention, he can still access College Abacus on his phone. Here are the schools we searched.
We found that Northeastern Illinois University, a state university in Chicago, Illinois has the lowest net price for Andy. Not only does Northeastern have a slightly lower sticker price than the College of Dupage and Midwestern Career College, it would also offer Andy over $4000 more than the other schools in aid.
How did we get these results?
We changed Andrew’s birthdate to reflect him searching for a college in the present at age 18. We know that The Breakfast Club takes place at Shermer High School. Although Shermer isn’t a real town, the zip code given in the movie is a real zip code for Northbrook, Illinois. We think that Andrew would want to live on campus to put some distance between himself and his parents if that is an option so we chose that option in College Abacus. We aren’t sure exactly what Andrew’s parents jobs were, so we guessed that the household income would be between $80, 000 and $89, 000. Based on this financial information, the schools were able to calculate projected net prices for Andy’s school year starting in the fall of 2015.
