2. Harvard University: $50,880 per year for full-time. 1,727 full-time students enrolled.

2. Stanford University: $50,802 per year for full-time. 575 full-time students enrolled.



4. Columbia University: $55,488 per year for full-time. 1,290 full-time students enrolled.

4. University of Chicago: $50,727 per year for full-time. 610 full-time students enrolled.

“The U.S. News rankings have long been a part of the school search process and can be helpful as an aggregate source of data around student population, academic life, job placement and other considerations. But the actual rank ordering of schools is a debatable measure that’s often more important to schools and their alumni than it should be for applicants,” said Jeff Olson, vice president of data science, Kaplan Test Prep. “Whether a school ranks 12th or 24th in the rankings won’t matter in the long run. Ultimately, students should apply to programs that are the best overall ‘fit’ for their academic, career, financial, and lifestyle goals and needs.”
