Best-value American Universities
I recently had the pleasure of visiting Hillsdale College and meeting Dr Rahe.
It was a thrilling experience to be among an entire community of people who see the world as I do! My student guide was an impressive young man, and filled me with hope for the young generation. I'd love to send my daughter there, but there is no way she is going to want to attend Hillsdale. She has always lived in The Big City and can't imagine being out in the sticks for four years, and is not at all averse to schools dominated by liberalism. She'll major in a hard science anyway.
I'm starting this conversation to try to find out what alternatives to Hillsdale the Ricochet members have to recommend. And I mean 'best-value' in both senses - - - the cost of attendance and also whether the core values of the USA are taught at all.
Living in Japan, we've sort of made up our minds that Stanford (travel convenience for us and reputation) is the only college we would be willing to borrow a lot of money for our child to attend. If she doesn't get accepted there, we'll go for the best financial aid package weighed against the academic rep.
What schools did you or will you encourage your children to consider?
