The quality of a Scranton education is not in doubt. In your example, 41,000 per year tuition and room/board after a scholarship is alot. Very few people can afford that. Scranton is now at least 36,000 more over four years than another jesuit school I'm considering and 58,000 more than a state school I'm considering. I'm disappointed because I love Scranton so much. It's just too expensive relatively speaking to other private schools.
