Hacker School is a three-month, full-time school in New York for becoming a better programmer for free, but stay, travels is yours.
I have no idea how much it will cost for travel from India, stay, food, internet, transit so I asked the question in Quora. I got pretty good answers.
Then I started do my lame math.
Rent = 1000 Phone = 80 Transit = 100 Internet = 40 Electricity = 40 Food = 250 Snacks = 100 Outing = 120 Misc = 100
Total = 1830.
So let me round to
2000 USD for safety.
If I am right I need to pay advance for Room, let me add one month rent to total expense.
7000 USD now.
Two way flight will cost
60000 INR, 10000 INR for Visa. Assuming
1 USD to 55.0, 70000 INR = 1272.73 USD.
7000 USD is 385000 INR. So total money required for me is
Q: How long will take to save so much money ?A: 30 months to 36 months.
So after 3 years these USD to INR must be higher and US food pricing, rent must be increased at least by 2% to 5%. So it will be 7350 USD.
By guess 1 USD will be 60 INR in 2015.
7350 * 60 = 441000, Wow to spend 3 months in Hacker School I need to save money for 3 years.
Will my interest hold up ?
Time and Tide waits for none.
