America's Most Expensive Colleges and Universities

Larkin sent me a link earlier this week to an article highlighting America's Most Expensive Colleges and Universities. Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York, tops the list this year at $57,556.

Morgan graduated from Sarah Lawrence College in May of 2009. It has always been an enigma to me where the money came from to pay for her room and board and tuition...
