Hey, At Least You Don't Goto Yale

Yale's new tuition figures are up - no wonder they always beat us in US New's dollars-per-student column. FACT: You would pay over $7k more in tuition to go to Yale (or over $21k over three years). Of course, if you're an out-of-state student, the number is only $2.4k. Not insignificant though.

Single Student Budget Married Student Budget
Tuition $46,200 $46,200
& Activities Fees
$2,140 $2,140
Room, Board and
Personal Expenses
$16,000 $21,100
Books $1,100 $1,100
University Hospitalization
$1,800 $1,800
Total $67,240 $72,340

Breaking: New Tuition Announced

Slightly misleading, but only in that less than half of the students at both schools actually pay sticker price for tuition. The median scholarship amount at Yale is about $6K higher than at Virginia. About 1/4 of Yalies receive more than half tuition scholarship, compared with only 11% at UVA.
Of course, if one is paying sticker price then the above advice still holds.

Yea, Yale Law costing a few thousand more does not make me think "Wow, glad I didn't go there." On the other hand, when there are Tier 3 or 4 schools still charging $40k/year for tuition alone, then it makes me feel better.
