Idaho College Ranks One of the Worst in America for Your Money…
I’m sure nowadays people (mostly) don’t think college is worth it anyway... but who’s to say?
One thing is undeniable, though, going to college means you will spend a lot of money. And after college, you’ll likely be paying off hefty student loans for years to come — you know — depending on what our government randomly decides to do or not do...
Anyway, I stumbled onto an article by MoneyWise that shares the worst college for your money in each state. Surely, I was curious to know what college made the list for Idaho. That college is… Idaho State University.
With the average net price being $13,349 per year and with median earnings of $35,700 after graduation, MoneyWise says, "the net price of tuition is slightly below the national average, and the median earnings six years after graduation are slightly above average. The typical student loan debt over four years is $21,876, and only 7.6% of borrowers default on their loans.”
They also said, “Idaho doesn’t have many medium- and large-sized colleges, so although Idaho State University comes in at the bottom of the pack, it isn’t bad in terms of value.”
Honestly, it really isn't that bad comparatively! I grew up in Pocatello and I know plenty of people who loved their time at ISU, and even though it made this list of worst colleges for your money, it really isn't bad. Idaho has some really incredible schools! Keep scrolling for Idaho colleges ranked by acceptance rate & 25 hilarious reviews on Boise area high schools 👇
