This article seems myopically focused on the status games of colleges.

It doesn't seem like a revelation that private colleges that spend tons of money per student require tons of revenue per student.

I'm sure every private school admission officer wants to admit a class that's great to teach and diverse without ever having to worry about money.

But these private institutions seem to exist for wealthy parents to transform cash into a slightly better stamp on their children's diploma. We already have a better solution to the problem mentioned in this article, which is the public college system which is both affordable and just as good of an education.
