  1. Oh... I worked for one of the top 25 colleges. Knowing this, I should have asked for a raise! I also spent a year in another one as a student... I must say that life on the campus reflected pretty much the tuition fees...

  2. Didn't Bennington take the top spot for years running a few decades ago? None of the Ivies make the top 25...

  3. Surprised not to see Harvard and Stanford on the list since they are Ivy league.

    1. According to the link, "Harvard placed as the 139th most expensive college tuition wise and 112th in total cost."
