    Yale 4.8% to $49,800
    Princeton 3.3% to $48,580
    Dartmouth 4.6% to $52,275

    And endowment draws at some of the Ivy's (and others) are reaching unsustainable levels.

    Meanwhile, today's news from Businessweek......Private School Demand Dips as New Yorkers Evade Cost (Update1) - BusinessWeek

    Shouldn't all schools have next year's tuition set by now? Can they determine the FA budget and award FA without setting tuition first?
  • WintersetWinterset Registered User Posts: 717 Member
    Most are set, but not yet announced. Generally at January/February board meetings. They will be announced soon.

    Thank you for pointing out the article, Winterset. I found this interesting:
    Demand differs from school to school and across grades, and may be up for high school even in places it is down for kindergarten. Applications for the 10 to 15 seats at Trevor Day School in Manhattan increased by 100, to about 250, said Pam Clarke, head of the school.
    Frank C. Leana, a private consultant in New York for admissions to high school, college and graduate school, said he has seen a “slight” increase in demand for private high school from the families he advises.
    “The economy has put inordinate emphasis on the necessity of an education’s leading to job prospects after college, and rightly or wrongly, people equate a private school education with a stronger likelihood of that,” Leana said in an e-mail.

    I noticed on CNN tonight that students are marching in the streets across the US of A protesting the sharp rise in college tuition.

    About time.

    Thanks Scontland. That's a 4.5% increase. The newly admitted families: you already know the new tution rate. It's included with your admission offer. Please come in and share.

    I do not know last year's tuition but it said on the letter that it was a 4% increase
  • BenleyBenley Registered User Posts: 1,643 Senior Member
    The current tuition is still on Middlesex website: $44,320 | $35,450 Tuition for boarding and day students, respectively. Yes, that's a 4% increase.

    Neato, you have several schools' offer at hand. Can you post their tuition rates for 2010?

    I think Grotons is 48,000 Boarding but I wouldn't stake my life on it and I can't find the papers right this second.
  • BenleyBenley Registered User Posts: 1,643 Senior Member
    That's very high, but this is "all inclusive" for Groton right? Does it include books and supplies as well as school fees? If so then on top of this, all you need is travel cost and spending money. Blue, you mentioned you got over FA equal to over half of the $48000 from Groton?
