Kenyon is a very good school but is certainly is not a good value. It is one of the most expensive schools in the country.

That's great news.
My record unpayable 20th century student loan debt is like a sick joke.
Then I looked at today's tuition at the same Ohio (Oyo in Native American) school.$$$$$????
It would not even buy two classes in a semester today.
I guess that's a helluvah bargain.
The Internet is making university's and their debt machines obsolete faster than you can say Fortran.
If you want the best education for the money live in station wagon parked somewhere in Princeton and haunt the library daily. Eat your tuition instead at PJs pancake house.
Only scarecrows and tenured economists need degrees to have a brain.

Denison, great value, really??? I guess if your a rich family from the Northwest states and want to send your snotty, worthless little brat somewhere and pay 40K a year to babysit and ensure a 4-year degree, then I guess it's a "great value".

A value? Total cost for one year at Case is 0ver $50,000. I agree that it's a great school and my son was able to get a good job after he graduated, but without lots of financial aid, I don't know who could attend CWRU.

I agree with Alex. I went to Kenyon and while it is an excellent school, I certainly wouldn't consider it a good value. Wonder what the criteria for "value" is.

Best value list? It sounds like these colleges are the "Aldi" of the school world. Buy 3 years, get one half off.

Is anything that costs the equivalent of a nice new car every year affordable?

I am afraid there is an impending student debt crisis, when $40,000 per year schools are considered "affordable". I understand financial aid is available, but only a minority of student receive significant aid.

I guess we should just remember that education is a business (although colleges vehemently deny the fact) just like banking or TVs, and that they are out there to to make as much money as possible...

These colleges are not so "affordable."

Anything less than a "brilliant" student or a very valuable sports player from a middle class family will be mired in debt.

Colleges are expected to "look" and "feel" like a Country Club.Gone is the utilitarian experience.
