I graduated college in 2006 and just looking at the price increase in the last 6 years is jaw dropping. There has got to be a better way for education. Then if you even consider a specialized school... don't even look you risk fainting!
I was just viewing a neat chart from Southern New Hampshire University that made me think a little. Go check it out here: http://www.snhu.edu/navigating-financial-aid-system.asp The chart has some really good information if you are currently looking to go back to school.
