Clever Clever HYP

The federal government’s involvement in higher education is moving along smartly: the Department of Education now has a website that ranks colleges by affordability. Needless to say, the College doesn’t come out well. Columbia is the most expensive Ivy; it stands in second place among all private schools. That said, New York City is a very expensive place in which to do business. Embarrassingly, Dartmouth is #14 — in Live Free of Taxes, low-cost New Hampshire:

The next-highest-ranking Ivy is #50 Brown: tuition and fees in Providence are $43,758. Penn is #51 at $43,478, and Cornell is #60 at $43,413.

Interestingly enough, Harvard, Yale and Princeton don’t make the list. Perhaps they feel that there is no honor in being among the most expensive colleges in the land. Their reputations are intact, nonetheless.

Addendum: As we noted the other day, in the Ivies only HYP have more endowment/student than the College. Why are we so expensive?
