Breaking the cost barrier

What’s the significance of the number 100 in the 2010/2011 academic year? Any guesses? Here’s a hint: the number was 5 in 2008/2009 and 58 in 2009/2010.

According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, the number represents the number of colleges charging $50,000 or more for tuition, fees, room and board. And this year marks a milestone in that the first (and only) public college made the list — the University of California at Berkeley is charging out-of-state students $50,649 this year. The most expensive college on the list?  Sarah Lawrence College in NY. It charges $57,384.
