Hi there fiftyplus,
I was interested to see your posts (http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/university-virginia/1367770-new-fees-engineering-nursing-students-2.html
) about the new engineering fees at UVA and was hoping to chat.
I'm an education reporter for ProPublica working on a story about fees. Just curious to get your perspective and hear more about how much they added up to in the end, how they were presented by the school, and whether you were aware of them ahead of time and could plan for the cost. Let me know if you'd be up for talking further.
(More info on me, so you know I'm not a total rando reaching out: http://www.propublica.org/site/author/marian_wang
