Fremont student gets good grades at overpriced east coast school

When your university 3,000 miles away has the staffing to alert your hometown newspaper reporter that you made dean’s list, you’re probably paying too much for your education.

Boston University wants everyone in Fremont to know that one their own got good grades for the Spring semester. Without financial aid that student, whose name I won’t mention, would have paid $38k just for tuition last school year.

If that student is a basketball fan, he/she would have seen his/her team lose by a point last February to my alma mater, whose in-state tuition is only $5,000 $6,769 (thanks head kvetch).

    Matt, your alma mater now costs $6,769 in undergrad tuition. Still a bargain!
