    Yeah, it's plenty, even at many private schools.

    EDIT: Assuming you don't live in NYC.

    cost of living varies greatly. for an example, going to college outside your state of residence can mean the difference between a 100dollar/unit and a 800/unit credit. Your question is too general and lack any information for us to give you any meaningful answer.

    To save money, I'd suggest going to a community college. Costs are much less. Just make sure that those credits transfer to the college that you want to go to. Usually in-state community colleges are able to transfer most, if not all, credits to another in-state college.

    for international students that will not be enough. maybe try 2x or 3x that if you go to Ivy League. However with financial aid its hard to tell, it varies greatly.

    It completely depends on the level of the school (MIT, Harvard vs. community college) and what type of neighbourhood you live in.

    dude that's 36k a year. That covers most Universities in california and that's assuming you go to a pretty nice one without any scholarships......

    That'll be plenty for most colleges here for your average public or private college either one.
    If you've got plenty of money and moving here just to go to college, I wouldn't go to a community one unless you need to send the money back home or something. There's much less activities at community and you can easily afford a 4 year college if that's a steady income.

    In general, that's fair enough for the lower end, ok for most of the average institutes, but you have to double up for the high-end, e.g. ivy.
