50 Colleges That Are Insanely Expensive, But Do You Attend One Of Them?

 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.
