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.
I hate to break it to you, but a degree from KU isn't going to be anywhere near as valuable as a Harvard degree. It's a black mark for your institution that one of their students is even making this comparison. I don't know why you think it matters that you can now get a Corolla for what a Rolls Royce used to cost.
When do you think the federal government got into the student loan business?
