This is the going price for private colleges everywhere. Tufts is not special.

But what do you mean by “comparable”? Any state school will give you an excellent education for much cheaper. What exactly are you getting for 2 or 3x the price?


Again, please find me an excellent state school that costs $30k OOS. Please!

Well the assumption is that a high stats kid will be getting plenty of merit aid.

Again - name some names please. Tell me the names of the excellent public universities that will give my high stats DC kids enough merit aid to make the cost $30k. Because many of us have been at this search for years and still haven’t found such a thing.

Michigan State is ranked 60th. They give 15k merit scholarships plus 5k for Honors college. That brings tuition down to about 33k. They have an amazing alumni network and study abroad programs. It’s a great school.

Florida state is ranked 53rd. Their OOS tuition is 21K (not sure about room and board).

I can find more if you want.

Half of the 83k OP is complaining about is room and board. Florida is 45k with room and board. Michigan state is Michigan state, which is not comparable to Tufts. Michigan is comparable to Tufts and is 76k for the first two years and 80k for the last two years

Someone please tell me how this is (or any school) is worth almost 90K. What are you exactly getting that you can’t get elsewhere for 1/2 or 1/3 the price?


If people will pay it, then that's what it's worth. Education pricing in the US is driven by the market


I mean I get that, but I’m just curious as to what people who are willing to pay think they’re getting out of it, more so than a much cheaper school.


Can you name a comparable school that costs 29k a year all in? OP said there were schools at the price, but can anyone name one?

The top 6,000 kids (and maybe more) at a school like Rutgers are at least as strong academically as the 6,000 kids attending Tufts. For more than $50k less per year if you're in-state and more than $30k/year if you're not. There may, however, still be very good reasons that someone who can afford to pay for Tufts will choose it over a Rutgers-type school. But the delta is a lot of money. Fwiw, my HS senior daughter has applied to both (she's in at Rutgers (and a couple of other big state schools) and waiting on Tufts among others.

Why is Michigan State not comparable to Tufts? Other than name recognition, no one can say why Tufts is so superior.

According to their website, Florida State is 38 all in. Where are you getting 45 from? Plus merit money would bring that down significantly.

Can you articulate why? This is what I’m trying to get at and no one can give a concrete answer.
