Before any high school graduate or military veteran sits down to select a college to attend, they may want to take a look at the department of labor website. Find out what positions, careers, jobs pay and which ones do not. Then you select a college program. I'm employed at a state college that recently placed all students in the liberal arts track - I guess this means you probably will never get into your chosen program because you can't get through the pre-rec's but please take this degree in liberal arts because this will be all you can get.
Select a career, know how long you will need to go to school and how much money you will need to spend. Don't be an idiot people - education is expensive.
And if your kids are using college as a social resort - you can tell by their grades, don't be afraid to pull them out. Their stupidity is going to be expensive - assist them in going back when they are more mature.
Military Veteran at the the end of a PhD program and under $200,000. It can be done!
Find the cheapest, properly accredited university and obtain your necessary degrees there. Cost-effectiveness is the most important thing. Big named universities will do little for you, unless you come from a well-connected background.
Watch the default rate triple in the next ten years.

Lynn University in Boca Raton Florida should be added to this list...
its a great haven for car thieves... tons of brand new, high end luxury vehicles in their back lot with little or no security; don't worry kids your daddies will buy you new ones ;) In other words, this university is where all the spoiled, self-righteous, rich kids of the world (yes I said the world) go when they fail to get accepted into a traditional University.
Seriously though, this University is best known for stealing bodies for its Funeral Service program, but don't be surprised if they lose your diploma or forget you even graduated... it's a small University that not many people have heard of and it certainly doesn't have an organized administration. They care more about appearance than they do about their students.
Oh and did I mention its really expensive to get attend.
