Why would a sane person even want to stay in college that long.


Well I wouldn't describe him as sane, but he was just a lot happier there than when he was at home I guess. Also tuition at my UG is like <7K/year so that makes that sort of behavior a lot easier to pull off.

No, you were probably just a good student who didn't transfer ever.

ETA: And this is actually a lot more expensive than it used to be. We went through two years of around 15% tuition hikes.

Also I lived off-campus for 170/month rent+utilities+cable+internets and my school was 60% female.

Yeah, that's why I get really up-in-arms when the whole "does UG prestige matter" thing comes around. Sure, some schools have great reputations, but really? Why pay $35-50k/year for undergrad when a lot of states offer UG degrees at literally a tenth of the cost.

Undergrad prestige is a myth outside of Ivy's and Should-be-Ivy's (i.e. Chicago..MIT..Stanford..). I took the scholarship at Cuse over "sticker" at NYU and Hopkins. Thankful that I did everyday

Especially when your institution has little-no effect on where you go to law school

LOL at me. I totalled up my grants I got for undergrad for Need Access. It was just shy of $200k.
