I too work at a private liberal arts university, and like yours it ain't cheap. I know our financial aid office is extremely busy. I also live in Texas - a state which has screwed over public education at all levels, primary and secondary. I know even in-state public university tuition is high, high, high. (My nephew is currently attending a state university.)

I've been watching over the years how the government has whittled way practically all federal financial aid programs while tuition rates keep going up. And yet, "they" - prognosticators, economists, reporters, etc - keep saying that for the US to stay competitive, we need to produce more college graduates than we are now, especially in sciences and technology. I'd like to know how that's going to happen with the tuition and financial aid situation as dismal as it is.
