Just got a letter from our fearless university president. It's a lovely 2-pager with all the wonderful going-ons in UNE. The best part was the final insert, a brief announcement lovingly folded and placed with extra care in the envelope: tuition rates will be $39 grand next year. Don't worry, she says. This tuition is "on par" with the other private COMs. On par, my ass. According to 2007 AACOM data, UNECOM will be one of the most expensive schools: http://www.aacom.org/colleges/tuition.asp. Depending on what AZCOM does, they may have wrested the glory of being the MOST EXPENSIVE SCHOOL OF OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE IN THE KNOWN UNIVERSE. I feel so lucky.
