Our daughter was offered a $15,000 per year merit scholarship at a liberal arts college. She made an overnight visit to check out the college. When we picked her up, we knew something was wrong. She reported that the classes she attended were being taught at a level below that to which she was accustomed in her high school honors/AP classes. The kids were partying (it was a Monday night), and she also found out that it was a suitcase school. Upon closer inspection, the facilities were not up to par. She ultimately chose a different liberal arts college at a cost of $36,000 per year.
