- A map released by eCollegeFinder shows the most expensive college or university in each state.
- The company used data from College Calc, as well as lists from Forbes, Yahoo! Finance, and CNN Money, to verify that each college had the highest total out-of-state cost in its respective state.
- For what it's worth, eCollegeFinder also notes that there are a number of databases with different methodologies that may show different results than the map (shown below), and that because it used only one school from each state, institutions like NYU, Columbia, and USC didn't make the cut.
While other methodologies might show different results for some states, this map is certainly interesting as an at-a-glance tool for anyone curious — or even for high school guidance counselors. A more in-depth state-by-state breakdown is also available on eCollegeFinder's site.
