SMU always finds itself on a slew of these “top colleges” lists, and not always for the best reasons (the druggiest list comes to mind).
This week, it’s “America’s REAL Most Expensive Colleges.” The list takes into account the total cost per year, then subtracts the average aid granted to each student. SMU’s “real cost” comes in at $32,643, good enough for #11 on the list. It’s the highest ranked school not found in the Northeast.
Drexel tops the list at $40,491. I’ve been to Drexel a million times; trust me, it’s not worth it. But is SMU? Discuss.
