Houston dad Marc Ostrofsky has five accomplished daughters and stepdaughters. And he is spending some $1.5 million to put them through college. Good thing Ostrofsky, who lives in the posh Houston neighborhood of Tanglewood, penned that New York Times' bestselling book, Get Rich Click!: The Ultimate Guide to Making Money Online .

Ostrofsky told KHOU's Shern-Min Chow that he is spending from $60,000 to $70,000 per kid, per year. Which schools are getting that cash?

Well, Maddy graduated from the Berklee School of Music in 2011. Twins Kelly and Shelly graduated this year from Duke and Washington University in St. Louis. Tracy will graduate from the University of Denver in 2014. Rounding out the pack is Mary Grace, a 2012 graduate of Kinkaid, is headed to Boston University in the fall.
