A recent study stuggest that NYU is the most expensive college in the nation, costing students nearly $62,000 annually. The U.S. Department of Education had initially ranked NYU as the 64th-most expensive school in the country with a tuition of $41,206; Columbia University's $45,290 tuition made it the nation's most expensive according to their findings. However, Business Insider considered tuition, room and board and additional fees that brought the total cost to $61,977.

If you spread that out over four years, students are paying nearly $250,000 for an education. They'd better hope they eventually get jobs that pay that much. Also, it can't be comforting to know that the money is helping faculty members ball out on crazy homes.
