This article is a joke ... the author seems to think "Prestigious" names equates value.
You get a much better value by going to a Community College/Junior College for two years, then transferring to a local state college to finish. What a horrible article, obviously written by a product of an overpriced university.
Stupid articele--they left off Oxford, Cambridge and the Sorbonne.
Sure, prestigious names have merit, but people reading a "value' article like this probably don't have $100,000 and Math SAT scores over 700.
BYU is fine if you are a Mormon. If not, forget it. Only a very small percentage of highschool graduates are getting into any of these schools and I doubt the living costs were included. Unless you are going for a STEM, you would do best simply to go to a community college the first two years and then transfer to a 4 years school. You must make sure that the 4 years school will accept credits from the community college. You had better check with companies in your career before spending the money for an education. You then can tailor your education around the company and career.
The article is correct when you look at the whole picture. When and what is the value realized? Tuition costs? Quality of education? Reputation of school? What doors does the school open? Who wants your school's degree? . . and what were your grades? Grades and school reputation open big doors. That is value.
Of course, maybe your only value is the intrinsic, personal value that education brings. Then, America is a smorgasbord of fine education schools. I believe upper education and the great school system we have is our greatest achievement and export to the world. I take nothing for granted. Let's preserve and strengthen it.
"best value' for the 1%'ers.
zero value for the regular person. regular people flat out can not aford these schools unless they receive a hand out free bee scholarship
