Knocking 15% off a *$54,000* yearly tuition is . . . not very meaningful.

That brings sticker price down to 45,850; 2011 levels.


Dean raises tuition, scam crowd cries foul. Dean lowers tuition and....scam crowd cries foul. Guess you cannot please some of the people any of the time.


Strawman, anon. Nobody is saying that reducing tuition isn't the right move, simply that the amount of the reduction should not be overstated. And it's not the "scam crowd" anymore; it's the "mainstream."

Fifty four thousand dollars.


At schools similar to Brooklyn, I know that the average discount off sticker is in the 25-35% range. I'm guessing this move did not really cost Brooklyn any revenue; they simply made public some of the discounts they were already offering with hope that the positive press would lead to more applications. It is an interesting move, but I don't think it was done for the students. If, instead, they cut tuition to under $20K, then perhaps they would get to a proper level for the jobs their grads are landing.
