From Forbes.com: “Is Your College Going Broke? The Most and Least Financially Fit Schools in America.” A few observations:
- The top spot for most financially fit school is Princeton University. No surprise there. Princeton has an endowment equal to $2 million per student.
- Also no surprise, the top 25 include some of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious schools: Columbia, Harvard, Notre Dame, Stanford, Wellesley, Yale, Juilliard, Bryn Mawr.
- There are a lot of Christian colleges with grades of C or D. The highest-rated explicitly Christian college is Wheaton (IL), at 57th on the list with an “A” grade.
- My employer, Lancaster Bible College, came in 205th place with a grade of “B.”
