When do you think the federal government got into the student loan business?
The comparison is interesting and valid if you use two different schools in the comparison. Funny... a buddy of mine and I were talking about cars. Yeah, huge difference between a Corolla and a Rolls Royce. But man, a Ford is really starting to catch up to an Acura.
Harvard and KU aren't good examples. But Michigan or UNC vs. Cornell or Dartmouth? Absolutely.
