    Have you looked at tuition to a private undergrad school lately. Harvard is at least that much. Seven years ago when my daughter was school shopping it cost 40K to go to Carleton or MacAlister in Minnesota. She went to Lewis and Clark in Portland and it was still in the mid 30's with a ten percent bump every year there after.

      but at Harvard as an undergrad you don't pay much of anything unless your parents make about six figures a year. You also get paid to work on a Ph.D. in the humanities, social sciences, and many of the hard sciences.

      The most 'elite' universities are also some of the most progressive in terms of graduated scholarships based upon ability to pay. The inequity propagated by the high cost of education' primarily hits those who go to mid-tier private and public schools.

        When you described everything as not Harvard and Yale as mid-tier.  Even granting that something like the top 5-8 universities pay financial assistance to most of their students, that doesn't a tier make.  

        •  Hey... (0+ / 0-)

          I went to one of those "mid-tier" schools and got a damn good education... Perhaps I should have been more generous, but the snooty private schools are most definitely in a tier of their own in terms of financial resources (if not necessary quality of education)..
