More than 2,300 undergrads pass through Hobart and William Smith Colleges every year, but they’re paying a pretty penny for the privilege – and at what cost? Well, $55,255 per year, to be exact.
And 10 years after entry, they can expect to earn an average of even less, around $53,000.
Columbia College Hollywood
Location: Los Angeles, California
Stay far away from this private school in Los Angeles. Unless you want to pay more than $10,000/year over the average for your tuition, anyway.
Couple that with the low graduation rate of 35% and the crippling debt you’re left if you do graduate and it’s easy to see why Columbia College Hollywood made our list of the worst schools in the country.
Location: Boston, Massachusetts
Northeastern is a prestigious university in New England. Unfortunately, they’ve got one of the highest property crime rates in the US, with nearly 127 crimes per 10,000 students.
These kinds of crimes can be anything from burglary to car theft. The good news is that graduates of this school will likely go on to be able to afford to buy a new vehicle.
The University of Maine at Augusta
Location: Augusta, Maine
Those who decide to attend the University of Maine at Augusta probably do so to stay close to family, and because its in-state tuition is less than $8,000/year. But if you’re in Maine, you’re not that far away from some of the best schools in the country.
New England is home to Yale, MIT, Harvard, and Dartmouth. But even if you’re not looking at Ivy League, there are better choices. This school’s median starting salary, less than $28,000, just isn’t worth the trouble.
Location: Chicago, Illinois
This culinary college in Chicago has a high acceptance rate of 84%. And it’s no wonder, considering they make an average of $184,900 for every student who earns a four-year degree at their institution.
Couple the $46,000 per year with the low graduation rate of just 35% and you can see why Kendall is on this list.
