So I guess I don't understand the relevance of your statement. The goal, btw, is to get the same (or better) quality degree (from the same school with the same amount of teacher/student interaction) you could have gotten 30 years ago for about the same amount of money plus a reasonable level of inflation. It can't be done.
I can get a degree from KU now for $8790/year. In contrast at harvard in 1983 tuition was $8200 a year. http://vpf-web.harvard.edu/budget/fa...01/page23.html

Furthermore, you start to see the jump in tuition coming (at least in the case of harvard) well before us being in the student loan business.
