College ranking round-up: Georgetown will leave you penniless
We’re not finished with college rankings yet? Guh.
Last week, Forbes reported that Georgetown has the second-most expensive dorms in the country. And what do students get for a measly $12,750?
“[A room] in one of four brick high-rises that resemble the aging, cramped spaces parents may remember from their own college days.”
During the 2010-2011 academic year [PDF], residence costs will range from $8,014 to $9,646. (Meal plans will cost $1,226 to $4,468.) The charges mark a 10 percent rise in room and board charges over the past three years.
But look on the bright side—Forbes ranked Georgetown as the 52nd best college in the country! Hurray for subjectivism!
