2. Time to lighten up on the hyper-selectivity and slash the eye popping tuition

Miami University in Oxford, Ohio is a public Liberal Arts university with a similar (actually slightly higher) acceptance rate to Hampshire College (65 vs 63%) but costs only half as much. Even factoring in the out of state surcharge the tuition is still far less and the quality of education is just as good.

Never understood the draw and, in my opinion, when I see someone wearing a Swarthmore or Wellesley shirt it practically screams "I'm better than you!".
