Media Advisory/Interview Opportunity - Back to School Doesn't Have to Empty Your Wallet

    TORONTO, Sept. 9 /CNW/ - More than half of Canadian students
underestimated the cost of going to university by as much as 34 per cent,
while almost half admit to having run out of funds. Yet by the time graduation
comes around, 58 per cent of recent and soon-to-be graduates anticipate being
ready to buy their first home in three to eight years, according to a BMO Bank
of Montreal survey.
    Although costs of a university and college education are rising, recent
grads have very ambitious goals about their financial future. To make these
goals attainable, students and their parents need to plan early and budget for
their future.
    BMO Bank of Montreal has experts available to comment and offer practical
financial advice about:

      -  Financing post-secondary education - planning and saving;
      -  Student day-to-day expenses - budgeting and getting the most bang
         for your buck;
      -  Managing student debt - options and solutions.
