College Is So Expensive That Americans Are Now Willing To Go To Canada For A Degree

Eric Andreasen, 23, from Portland, Maine, is studying political science at McGill University in Montreal.
MONTREAL, Canada -- Eric Andreasen is a college student from Portland, Maine, who has his sights set on a career working for a lawmaker in the nation’s capital.

But even though the political science major plans to go straight to Capitol Hill when he graduates this spring, he will have a degree from a Canadian college -- McGill University in Montreal.

Back when Andreasen, 23, was deciding where to go to college, he applied to a dozen U.S. schools. When it came time to choose, he narrowed it down to either George Washington in D.C. or McGill just north of the border.

McGill offered him a full undergraduate university education for what it would have cost for just one year at G.W.

“When the financial packages came in, it was a no-brainer for me,” Andreasen said.
