Well my alma mater has finally done it

They slapped the Purdue name on Kaplan.

It sucks. They are operating just like every one of the for profits.

I knew it was coming, but I am depressed.

$371/credit for a Business degree which requires 180 credits = $67K before fees.

1. That's a shame. Do they still expect to be part of the BIG (formerly 'Big Ten") league football etc?

Probably. However, even having one academic area go profit, even though no doubt they will protest this label, tarnishes their image IMO. I think they will be the only one in this league doing this. Hope it doesn't spread.

2. How many 10's can there be in the Big Ten? Rutgers has wasted a couple'a million on Big Ten

coaches and stadium. So far, none of it has returned dividends.

3. Not a big surprise considering

that Mitch Daniels, formerly asshole Republican governor of Indiana (yes, the one who first started ruining public education in Indiana) is the president of Purdue.
