10 incredibly pricey college dorms
Room and board can add up fast, especially at these schools

Interesting that all but 1 or 2 were either in NY o CA.
Well, lets see-for comparison-My senior year in college was the most expensive. We were on the quarter system. 3 quarters made up the school year.
Room, board (3 meals 7 days a week), laundry, and course fees came to a total for the quarter of $285.
We did have to buy our own books. Those $30, $40 books were outrageous at the time.
And another thing I forgot-that price also included tickets for all home games in basketball and football and at least two concerts in the auditorium each quarter.
Unfortunately for today's teenagers, I think the only way to get college costs down is for the Government to severely cut and restrict student loans and Pell Grants. The Colleges have no incentive to lower their costs when the Feds are handing out free or nearly free money.
Just realized our "grown up" college kid costs us $9720 to live out on the prairie and stare at
Jackrabbits for the last 18 months. Now she has to prove her residency there for one year longer than she has lived there for residency.
In Minnesota, they don't care if you came from Mars, you qualify for residency (even if you are green)
after 6 months.
Most college kids are receiving the message, the education system is harder to enter and they are not
being treated fairly as adults. Knowing this, they also pay for excessive spending by Universities for
delusional genius instructors who many cannot relate to normal people.
I know it sounds a lot like government gone wild!
Everything is Bigger in TEX-****. .... I meant pay more Taxes especially in New York.
as on the TV show "The A-Team", BA would say " you're a fool " if you go to a place you can not afford. "Fool".
Wow and I thought Spalding University was high!
I pay about $8580 for tuition (12 credits) and $4250 ($3050 for single room + $1200 mandatory meal plan) total of $12380 for this fall semester.
