Need A Cheaper Option Than Your State School? Try Harvard. Seriously.

A little known fact: As states cut higher education funding out of their budgets, state universities are becoming MORE expensive than elite, private universities. But public perception hasn't caught up with the trend. What's going on here?

Please share this to raise awareness. And to all you cash-strapped aspiring college students — looks like your best bet might be to set your sights on Harvard!
