WASHINGTON Breaking News: Economic Concerns Drive College Choices

Wochit 0:56 mins

According to a report from loan giant Sallie Mae, college costs are driving decisions about which schools to attend, what to study and even where to live. Parents no longer foot the largest portion of the bill, according to the lender's annual survey. That role goes to grants and scholarships, with student loans coming in third. Republicans in the House-of-Representatives will consider granting citizenship to the children of illegal-immigrants, marking their first step toward dealing with the millions of undocumented-foreigners living in the United States. House Republicans took a tentative step toward offering citizenship to some unauthorized-immigrants, but hit an immediate wall of resistance from the White House on down as Democrats said it wasn't enough.
