IS COLLEGE WORTH THE COST?  THE MAJORITY OF FAMILIES SAY "YES"--ACCORDING TO THE LATEST "HOW AMERICA VALUES COLLEGE"-REPORT, FROM "SALLIE MAE" AND "IPSOS".  TWO-THIRDS OF FAMILIES IN THE SURVEY SAY THAT--WHEN IT COMES TO PAYING FOR COLLEGE--THEY'RE GETTING A GOOD VALUE.  BREAKING THAT DOWN, 36-PERCENT SAY THAT THEY'RE PAYING A FAIR PRICE; 10-PERCENT SAY THAT THEY'RE GETTING A BARGAIN; AND 20-PERCENT SAY THAT COLLEGE IS WORTH EVERY PENNY.  WHAT'S MORE, FAMILIES IN THE SURVEY ARE WILLING TO STRETCH FINANCIALLY, TO PAY FOR COLLEGE.  BUT, THEY REMAIN COST-CONSCIOUS--AND TAKE STEPS TO MAKE IT MORE AFFORDABLE.  SPECIFICALLY, TWO-THIRDS OF STUDENTS ARE CUTTING BACK ON SPENDING--AND ALMOST HALF ARE WORKING YEAR-ROUND, TO EARN MONEY FOR COLLEGE.  ALSO, MORE THAN ONE-THIRD LIVE AT HOME WITH PARENTS OR RELATIVES, TO SAVE ON HOUSING-COSTS--AND ABOUT ONE-IN-FOUR ARE ACCELERATING COURSEWORK, TO GRADUATE SOONER.  TO LEARN MORE, VISIT "SALLIE-MAE"-DOT-COM; THAT'S "SALLIE-MAE"-DOT-COM.
