I estimate a good in state school at $30K/year all in. Stanford is $60K/year. (In today's $$).I don't see that a Stanford education experience is 2x better.not 2x but maybe 1.73 ?..... it's not solely about the education and depends what you want to do.smaller classes with "world class" profs (research-wise, not necessarily teacher-wise)going to a Stanford is a plus if applying for grad schoolcan be a plus when applying for jobcan mean meeting/knowing/competing with the best and the brightest[ the kids who built Google, e.g. my cousin went to Harvard and likes to point out that just from his *class*: for Nobel Prizes, a US VP, and two Oscar winners ]can be useful at parties: people will 'assume' you're smart, rich, or arrogant (two of the smartest people i've known went to Stanford: a law school buddy and his wife; two of the most arrogant people i've known went to Harvard; i don't know any rich people)... and easy for ME to say since i don't have kids to put through school <g>*disclosure: i live about 2 miles from Stanford, have been in their hospital, and they rejected my applications 4 times
