A bit off topic (but related) but my buddy in Tennessee was telling me about some program where you can start paying tuition at todays rates, for college expenses at that university in the future. He didn't specify which university was doing this.

Never heard of such a thing. Anyone have some insight?

Yes that's pretty common. Here's Virginia's version: https://www.virginia529.com/blog/whats- ... d-tuition/.

I picked Virginia's because it has many top-tier state universities to pick from (UVa, Va Tech, William and Mary)--as compared to Tennessee for example.

Now that I'm thinking about it again, I think he might have said Vanderbilt in Nashville case that's were he lives?

I'll have to see what colleges around me offer such a thing. My only concern, is what if they choose a major like I did that wasn't offerred at that particular college. I know when I was in grad school, my major was only offerred at a handful of universities. For me it was between UoA and a few medical related colleges (like John Hopkins) at 4 times the tuition cost. So I went to Alabama because they had my major and it was inexpensive.
