$1.5 Million Tuition Bill for Houston Dad Marc Ostrofsky

Unique bonds are often formed between fathers and daughters. When it comes to college, dads will sometimes give an arm and a leg to give their daughters the best that money can buy. But dad, if you think that thousands of dollars is going to cut it, think again.

A Houston dad plans to spend $1.5 million in tuition so that his five daughters can experience higher education.

“We’re looking at roughly $60,000 to $70,000 per child per year,” said internet tycoon Marc Ostrofsky.

He spent last week traveling across the county to attend three of his daughters’ graduations. Kelly graduated from Duke and her twin, Shelly, graduated from Washington University in St. Louis.
