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.
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.
This article is a joke ... the author seems to think "Prestigious" names equates value.
