Georgetown now the 7th most expensive school in the country

Georgetown is the seventh most expensive school in the country for the 2009-10 school year, according to a list just compiled by Campus Grotto.  With a total average cost of $51,122 per year, we’re more comparatively economical than we were last year, when we came in third.

The curious thing about Georgetown’s showing is that although we’re the seventh most expensive school overall, we only have the 41st highest tuition ($38,616 per year), meaning we’re making up the difference with much higher room and board fees.

Luckily, we can still boast about being (slightly) less expensive than our cross-town peers at George Washington.  With a total average cost of $51,730, they claim the title of the third most expensive school in the nation.

  1. I wonder if the other schools with high tuition don’t have a student union building. It seems like if we pay so much, we should also have access to decent student space.
