I don't think they are the best. You can get the same education from a high cost university, say $40,000 a year for two semesters. Or you can go to a lower and closer university that is $15,000 a year with three semesters. Both offer the same services and the same classes. You could even, to save more money, go to a community college for the first two years for one third of the price as the lower and closer university and you can get three semesters instead of the two offered at others.
To add up the costs of the plan I have offered. $5,000 a year for the first to years. That comes to $10,000 for over 60 credits. You can even have your Associates in there within the cost boundaries I've offered. Then take that $10,000 and pile the two years of $15,000 at the lower and closer university. That's $40,000. So one year at the higher university is the same cost as an Associates and a Bachelor degree at a community college and a closer university.
Here's a hint. You save $120,000 in loans and debt for the same education!
