Tuition for NEXT year

Tuition for NEXT year
« on: March 31, 2007, 05:04:42 PM »
Does anyone know the tuition numbers for NEXT YEAR at UMich, UVA Duke, or UChi?  Last year's figures are still on the sites (or at least that's the only thing I can find...)

UVa total cost of attendance is $56,200 next year - $17,700 of that is living expenses (which they noted at the ASW, is up by about $2000 over last year, as they wanted to allow people to rent 1BR apartments by themselves and still be able to make ends meet with the budget).

(If I remember right, both Virginia and Michigan are nearly entirely privately funded. I think Virginia said that the extent of their public funding is the amount of the discount for in-staters for each in-state student they have.)

I appreciate that clarification... I had heard about the $56,200 total and was a bit concerned by the big increase from last year, but given that $2000 of that is for living expenses, that makes me feel better about it.

How can a public school cost that much?  Ridiculous.

They are public in name only.  Mich and UVA both function like private schools, Mich to a greater degree.  It allows them to maintain their rank while other top publics (UCLA and UT) lag in student quality.

Even UCLA and Texas are 25k/36k and 18k/31k for res/non-res (respectively).  I had no idea until I just looked this up.  That's insane.  Alabama is 10k/20k.

And UCLA is going up by something like 8-10% next year, and UT in-state will be to $20K/yr.
