A major United States university has crossed a line – a line that’s tough to imagine.

 

The $60,000 a year line.

 

Costs (2012 – 13):

  • Tuition and Fees: $43,204
  • Books: $1,070
  • Room and Board: $16,133
  • Other Expenses: $1,000
  • Total Cost: $61,407

Where?

 

NYU.

Think “scholarship”.
