There are a few reasons to reconsider attending this university in Nebraska. The first is that they’ve made the top ten lists of the worst schools in the country for free speech.
Their expensive tuition and 60% graduation rate aren’t great, either.
Peru State College
Location: Peru, Nebraska
Well, considering you’ve seen graduation rates that aren’t even at 10%, Peru State College’s 36.7% isn’t exactly horrendous. Though it’s definitely not good by very many standards, either. Six years after the fact, the average salary a Peru State alumnus can expect to receive is around $37,000.
When you put that up against the median loan debt of nearly $23,000, it’s safe to say there are much better options available.

Herzing University in Madison can be considered one of the best of the worst. Sure, it’s made its way onto this list, but it still isn’t as bad as some of these schools. The graduation rate is just a little above 42%, which is lower than the national average but much higher than those in the single digits or even in the teens and twenties.
The average loan debt for Herzing grads is higher than usual at over $32,000.

Carleton College is selective, accepting just 22% of students who apply to attend.
The academic program isn’t what put this school on our list, however, but rather the fact that it’s super expensive at more than $50,000 per year.

Remington College in Texas is known for its shady recruiting practices.
An investigation by ABC revealed taking on felons as students and telling them they could get jobs in criminal justice – when that’s not the case.
