New York is already prohibitively expensive to live in — why not make it prohibitively expensive to go to school here, too? In what looks like a domino effect started last month by NYU (where room and board now clock in at almost $50,000 a year), just about every institution of higher learning in the city has upped its cost by between 5 and 10 percent. Columbia will charge $37,410 in the next school year; Barnard is a bargain at $35,190. Fordham is yours for $32,530, Pace is just a little over $30,000. (Pace? $30K? Wow.) Combine this with a Pell grant program that's gone rather stingy in the Bush years, and it's clear that New York's reputation as a rich-kid playground is about to get another boost. Which is to say: You know we've always loved you, our new 18-year-old midwestern overlords, right? Can we buy you a soda pop?
