At Cooper Union, ideally, she would be on campus for the first year (which is close to guaranteed) and on her own after that. At one point early in the process this was her top choice (before that it was NYU and after that Columbia then Barnard).
I can’t complain about the price. For our family, it works out to about the same as CMU for the first two years (while my daughter’s older brother is in school) . I expect CMU would increase their cost (or, more accurately, reduce the provided aid) after that . . . but I expect off-campus housing near Cooper Union would also add to the bill there, so, for planning purposes the cost is a wash for us. I suspect Michigan will be the most costly. I have not seen an FA package from them yet (my daughter seems to be rationing the information she passes along . . . though I expect it simply that she has no sense of urgency on the matter yet) so I am saying that without any information. Perhaps it is simply my pessimistic nature.
