Hopefully this is the start of a trend!  :D There are so many promising students out there who have to abandon their dream of med school because it's just too damn expensive.  Now students from all economic backgrounds can go to med school.  This is a win for the entire country.

A private school socializing their university. Go figure.

Good for them.   Now how are they paying their rent and making payroll?

Good point. Good faculty do not come cheap. 

Neither is real estate in New York City.

Somebody has to pay the bills.   Who's doing it, so they can do this for their students?

 

I hope for their sake, and the sake of their students, that this isn't just a show that is going to hurt them in the long run.

"Free" ain't really free, shi'tstain....

The plan does not cover room and board or fees, which together are an additional $27,000, on average.

About 62 percent of N.Y.U.’s School of Medicine graduates leave with some debt; the average debt incurred by members of the class of 2017 was $184,000.

[..]

 

N.Y.U. said that it had raised more than $450 million of the $600 million that it anticipates will be necessary to finance the tuition plan. About $100 million of that has been contributed by Kenneth G. Langone, the founder of Home Depot, and his wife, Elaine, for whom the medical school is named.

 

 

So, one of those EVIL CAPITALISTS makes a HUGE monetary donation so this can work, huh??

 

Oh, and HE IS A MASSIVE TRUMP SUPPORTER AND HAD BEEN CONSIDERED FOR A CABINET POSITION TOO!!
 

Oops.

 

There goes all that SOCIALISM you shi'tstains are clamoring for.

 

IT TAKES CAPITALISM TO MAKE IT WORK, MORONS!!!

do you two not have the internet?!

Yes, they are asking corporations for donations.  Those evil companies you want to tax out of existence. 

Of course, only the "tuition" is covered,  room, board and "fees" are still charged to the students to the tune of $27,000.

Apparently, room/board and fees are still being charged so it is not like they are getting a completely "free ride"

 

From posts above, it appears that the cost is being absorbed by donations from corporations and the private sector. 

 

Somewhat unrelated but I will say that the cost of higher education is out of hand.

Agreed, and it is going to keep getting MORE AND MORE EXPENSIVE TOO.


As long as GOVERNMENT HAS MONEY INVOLVED IN IT, the COSTS will rise 3-4 times as fast as ANY thing else.

 

It's happened with health care costs, housing costs, you name it- IF government is involved in funding of any kind, PRICES are out of control.

 

NO ONE can prove me wrong because it's been PROVEN as fact over and over and over.


Want the cost of COLLEGE to come down?? CUT OFF GOVERNMENT FUNDING TOTALLY!!!

You have your sights set high if you think that government is going to pull out entirely. In plain english, the end of federally funded student loans. 

 

However, these loans are a large part of the increase in the cost. The universities know that they can charge exorbitant rates because the students can and will get student loans to cover the cost. It distorts the demand and supply dynamic. Another less publicized element is the salaries of the high level admin.

Cut off that government teat and see how fast TUITION gets cut by 60-75% or MORE in order to get students to enroll!!

 

Along with those "high dollar salaries" that are been paid.

As a more intermediate solution, I would support making it more difficult to obtain these loans.

I guess that's why people are moving out of NY in Droves. It's that old Dimmy way of destroying a state.

 

The left always roots for the FAILURE of America.

In addition to the students, I could see smaller schools closing their doors. That is the nature of the game but not everybody would take their getting laid off with such grace.

Yes I agree, wouldn't want you to have another trigger moment that would send you to your save place with cookies and puppies.

 

Once you understand that Leftism is hate, everything falls into place.

Yes, that's the ticket!  Let's make sure only rich kids can get an education and those who are poor can go work for Walmart for $7.50 an hour.  By the time they reach age 50, they'll be up to over $10.00 and hour!  What a great life they'll have!

Could only rich kids afford tuition if it was less than $1000 per semester?

 I am also helping then out by preparing a pain reducing herb used by American natives, similar to opium but non addictive that I have harvested from a field in back of my house and this will at least save them some time since they will probably be working for less pay.
