College is a place where you go to learn and really help yourself grow as an individual. The question is though can you afford it? Well it turns out many people can affford college. They can even afford the most expensive schools in the country. Would you rather go to a school that had a good reputation but was really expensive? Or would you rather go to a school that was less expensive but had a ok reptuation? With the rough economy in today’s age don’t you think it would be better just to focus on getting a stable and decent pay job rather than focusing on the name and reputation of the college?
Business Insider came up with these numbers by “examining the average cost of tuition, fees, room, and board that an incoming student would face over the 2014–15 academic year.”
Well, good luck attending one of these universities! I would recommend going to a college cheaper, as college is honestly NOT what leads you to getting a job. Remember people, life is ALL about who you know, not the college you spent a CRAZY $60,000 a year to attend!

Lol you seem to be ignoring the fact that a lot of who you know has to do with what college you went to. It’s not everything but it’s at least 50%.
I hate articles like these..these are the tuition costs at FACE VALUE. The article fails to take into consideration the generous financial aid that students often receive. In many cases, the private colleges that cost the most tuition-wise (such as the Ivy League) also are the richest and therefore can provide the most financial aid to its students. Those that cannot are often small liberal arts colleges.
For alot of my friends in the ivy leagues/Stanford/MIT (all expensive schools), their private school costs less or equivalent to the cost if they were to attend a state school.
