Brown did not match Dartmouth's Financial Aid

    here is a detailed summary of how brown allocates funding, with relevant tables at the end (note all figures are represented in thousands of $)

    as you can see, the entire enterprise of educating students requires three quarters of a billion dollars each year in liquid resources (this does not even include the value added from nonliquid resources such as special library collections, museum holdings, etc.).

    dividing this number by the total student body yields annual expenditures that are two-three times tuition, summing to $400-500 thousand dollars over four years of college.

    Pinder is seriously out of whack. Brown is about on par with Columbia, Dartmouth, and Penn. None of these schools is much better than the other. Get over yourself.

    Brown is not worth spending 48k more than Dartmouth unless you really don't think you would fit in at Dartmouth

    So how much does Brown spend on each undergraduate student per year? Is it more than the money that you pay or is it less than that? (I suppose it can't be less since it is non-profit or is it non-profit?)

    the posts in this thread are ****ung ridiculous. brown and dartmouth are more or less the exact same in terms of quality of education. unless you like brown a LOT more than dartmouth, go to dartmouth, because it's also a great school where you'll probably be happy
