17000dollars:

Depends on which school and where you live.  For some private colleges in the US, it wouldn’t pay for one semester (financial aid aside).

for $17000 you could attend a university for the rest of your life in norway and still have $17000

For 17,000 dollars you could buy 3.5 real human articulated skeletons (one of a kind, naturally), or 217.9 glow in the dark pose and stay skeletons.
