It looks like all they looked at were local prices for electronic gadgets which you can get cheaper online anyway regardless of where you live. They should have compared costs of opening bank accounts, service plans for phones and television, parking permits, public transportation, local restaurants, etc. Who spends $2,000 on brand new electronics their freshman year, anyway?
