Was wondering just how expensive UPenn is. Now I remember why I don't think about how much a year of college costs me, let alone 5. Articles like these are great, and it's good to have more exposure to this problem but they're starting to give me a headache with the lack of the action...as far as I'm aware anyway.

Some more info since I'm interested right now. The following is for full-time students enrolled in between 12 and 18 credit hours. It's not terribly pertinent to this article but I was curious.

Cost per credit hour (in-state) at UPenn: $1,296

Cost per credit hour (in-state) at my college: $315

Cost per credit hour (in-state) at Bunker Hill Community College: $141
