Think all the top T14 will only have minimal increases, and the lower will see a larger yearly increase (from people applying to more safety-ish schools)?
Probably some combination of Cornell removing the Dean's Cert. requirement and Berkeley's absurd tuition that I plan to pay.
Ah yes, I forgot about the Tuition increase.....
Unfortunate, because Berkeley would be a clear #2 for me behind SLS if it was still under 40K for instate tuition. OOS at 52k makes the decision between Berkeley and UofC / NYU / Columbia harder. It's like "Can I really justify taking the weaker school AND paying more?"
Agreed, but I still hope for the opportunity to have to make that decision. However, so far in the process I have been looking at the cheapest, best school I can possibly get so picking NYU/Columbia over Berkley wouldn't be difficult for me since I have no ties to Cali.
The name changes also confuse me; especially because I can't figure out how to change mine lol.
