And what do you suppose the employment status of those unknown/non-replys is? I would bet it is overwhelmingly "unemployed" or "underemployed."
And that cost won't change until (1) people stop flooding the schools with applications, and (2) loan money is not made so readily available. Schools are responding to a (ill-conceived) demand, their seats are full and more schools are being opened. Until the bubble bursts they will keep lowering the bar for admission. Heck, Cooley is opening ANOTHER campus in FL. At $1,200/credit hour that is like printing money.
