    Do you think private colleges are worth the tuition?

    With tuition costs at an all time high, do you think the cost of private college is justified by the type of learning that occurs in these schools?

    Interestingly, some private schools can be less expensive than public schools. This is because those schools will have much larger endowment funds to give scholarships and grants. So, it really depends on the schools ability to assist the student through grants aand scholarships and the network they have built for future job placement. Chapman University is one of the most expensive schools in California, but it also has one of the largest endowment funds. If a person wants to go into the film industry, Chapman has extra funds to defray costs of the education and they have wide connections in the film industry. The same is true for USC (the University of Southern California); the price is high, but the alumni loyalty runs deep that a graduate can nearly always find employment. At least that is the way it was in the past.

    That is the question I have been asking myself lately! I attended a priave school, and have the loans to show for it!  As ecoggins said below, in many cases your cost of attendance can be lower since there are so many scholarship and grant opportunities available.

    For me, I think it was worth it not because of teh classroom learning which took palce, but because of the many connections I had outside the classroom and the various opportunities I had to attend service trips, various speakers and seminars, and get involved in a lot of activities.

    Sometimes the networking can be very powerful too as ecoggins said, particularly in certain industries.  If that is one of your determining factors, I'd say look very closely at what career service and alumni services offers.  I have been a bit dissapointed by my college's career services office.  They sent us tons of emails junior and senior year about internship opportunities, on campus recruiters etc.  but 90% of them were marketed at business majors, which left the rest of us out to dry.
