By comparison, Stanford Law in 2009-10 is $42,420 and Harvard Law is $43,900. Those will undoubtedly rise, but probably not to the extent of Berkeley's increase.
does this statement have any basis in fact?
because everything i've read and heard about the matter (which is not a small amount) suggests otherwise.
Berkeley's tuition in 2009-10 is $36,485. It goes to $44,220 in 2010-11. That's an increase of 21% as Berkeley/UC has embarked on the most aggressive tuition hike campaign in the country.
For the other schools to hike tuition by the same 21% would mean Stanford would charge $51,300 and Harvard would charge $53,100 in 2010-11. Could it happen? Sure. Is it likely? Probably not. The factors that have led UC down this path have not affected Stanford, Harvard or any of the other T14 schools in the same way.
She's talking about the actual amount of tuition, not percentage of increase. Most schools in the T10 are at or near 44k already.
