Colleges are dealing


No--not THAT kind of dealing. Making deals!

Douglas Belkin and Melissa Korn, WSJ, Mar 12, 2013, say a number of liberal arts schools are offering buy this, get this free type deals. Or Apply today and get $2500 cash back.

One school says if you don't graduate in four years (many don't), the additional classes are free.

Or they offer a stipend for research. Or they are freezing tuition.

Other schools are countering the idea that tuition is wasted on stupid, biased or frivolous class offerings.

Fewer kids are graduating high school--this makes fewer going to college. The race is on!

Ask for a deal--what have you got to lose?
