Here's some good news from our alma mater that I received today in my Alumni Newsletter email:

Marquette Wire named one of the top five student media outlets in the country

The Marquette Wire, the university's student media outlet housed in the Diederich College of Communication, was named a top-five finalist in the College Media Association's national Pinnacle Awards competition for "Best College Media Outlet of the Year." The outlet joins finalists from Indiana University, Lehigh University, Pepperdine University and UCLA, and the winner will be announced at the ACP/CMA  Fall  National College Media Convention,  held from Oct. 14-17.

The Marquette Tribune student newspaper was also named a finalist in the sports investigative category.

Because people are more likely to buy something expensive if they feel they've gotten a deal. Think about 50% off a name brand suit vs Walmart.

I don't agree. First, you have some rich people who aren't going to get discounts and will pay for a Marquette education. Their tuition pays for 1.5 to 2 people to go there.

Secondly, third party payers drive much of the tuition cost. If you've ever been in surgery at a major hospital, you see the same thing. There's the stated rate and then there's the terms and conditions governing how insurance companies reimburse the hospital. College is the same thing. The $55,000 rate is a starting point and a good negotiator gets as close to that number as he or she can.
