UCLA expensive? Georgetown is 40k a year.
my old highschool was 10K a year...
It was in bad taste.
Could be, could very well be .
By inexpensive I mean like at my University which was a mere 3600 a year..I'm not talking about those ultra high-profile private schools you are talking about, but a nice cheap-ass state funded school
you mean a two-year, state funded community-college-that-nobody-has-ever-heard-of?
No..i went to a four year state funded university that no one has heard of...except our law school is in the top 25, but other than that our claim to fame was ALMOST beating UMD in the NCAA tournament 3 years ago.
as mentioned before, sports are for losers.
And top 25 isnt the same as top 5.
Wow, my university is regarded as one of the best engineering universities in Canada and our tuition is ~1400 CAN per semester.
It pretty much is, considering that those rankings are based upon some arbitrary numbers such as Alumni contributions and the low percentage of students accepted into the program per year, not the actual academic excellence, or more importantly the actual learning that gets done at a University. Prestige come from employing high profile professors who are supposed "giants" in their field, but do almost no teaching (and if you've taken a class with a nobel prize winning professor you will understand what I'm talking about). Don't be fooled by those number...don't be fooled by the price (remember private colleges are that expensive because they don't get assistance from the state, my university costs 17,000 a year for out-of-state, which is the same amount an instate person would pay at say University of Miami)...My advice is to actually go and talk to the professors in your program first, research them, find out what they wrote their dissertations on, what their PhD is in, and find a school with the campus life and academic rigor that you are looking for.
Cowofwar's college is so cheap because it gets subisidized by his evil socialist government , doesn't make it a bad school, and the fact that we have no idea, probably what it is, doesn't make it worse...my advice stands, pick a rigorous school that isn't too expensive for your undergrad, because your real work won't come until your graduate and/or doctorate education/research...I'm serious.
It doesn't mean diddily shit where you get your BA or BSc, that comes into effect when you go after your masters or phD.
Yeah, we'll see who gets into CalTech first
