I agree. Coming from Massachusetts, the schools that we found that were $30k or less were in-state publics, and some universities in Canada (all if you have Canadian or dual citizenship, some otherwise). We did find merit money at out of state public schools, but not enough to get the cost down to $30k.
I know a lot of very good colleagues who graduated from UMass Amherst.

It has been nearly 5 years, but in my recollection once I started with the "clean me out" solution I was quickly too bloated to want to eat anything. I don't recall precisely which solution they gave me.
I recall that first small meal after it was over to be quite pleasant.
