The shakeout of the haves versus the have-not private colleges is accelerating.

Ed Cone

As the father of two teenagers, I welcome the pricing trend...but at the same time, I guess it will make it that much harder to get into the top-quality schools that are able to afford some tuition breaks.

I like the Haverford approach, which seems rooted in the culture of the school. Haverford has never been a wealthy school compared to its peers, so I'm glad it can afford to play this game.


We think it is a great thing, too. But we do predict a darwinian shakeout of private colleges. The weaker ones financially will perish. Some pruning might be in order, anyway.
