it is a little disconcerting that tuition went up over $4500 in a year and the cost of attending Notre Dame is only $2000 less than Yale. I wonder how they will justify that sticker price if they have another graduating class with 13% unemployment; that doesn't happen at Yale.
I mean, I agree that sticker is outrageous, but I don't know there is any sense comparing it to YLS. All t20's
the same sticker. And T1's are close unless in-state.
Since when is ND a top 20?
Not to flame or anything, but I feel that comparing ND's tuition with schools all ranked at least a few spots higher is unfair. Their perceived stinginess will likely result in students deciding to attend elsewhere. If it really is a problem, I think they will get the message rather quickly, especially with the reduced number of applications at most schools this year.
Good point. Should've used t25. But, to be fair, that distinction is meaningless. There is a small band of mostly private schools that do significantly worse than the t14 in placement but slightly better than the rest of t1. Schools like Emory/ND/WUSTL/USC. (But, for the most part, they serve different regions). There is some sense in comparing them to each other since they serve similar roles in their regions. Not the in-state flagship, but not t14. This weird middle ground of certain schools in the 15-25 band.
Is this better? My point is, the semantics aren't relevant, and the comparisons serve a very limited purpose--albeit a purpose that probably justifies comparing tuition.
