While getting into a Public Ivy can be tough, getting a good education at a more reasonable price could be a high school graduate's best option. However, it's important to note that there are varying opinions among experts as to which schools should be considered a top Public Ivy. The idea of a strong Public Ivy doesn't just include high-performing academics but also encompasses a rich history, attractive campus and diverse student population that you'd expect from the ivied halls of a Yale or a Harvard. These factors are worth considering before deciding whether a Public Ivy is right for you: How much do these schools cost? Because Public Ivies are partially state-funded, their tuition fees are substantially lower than those of academically-comparable private schools. For comparison's sake, let's look at the 2012-2013 tuition rates of several private and public ivies: Private -- Harvard University: $40,866 -- Princeton University: $38,650 -- Yale University: $42,300 Public -- University of California, Berkeley: $11,767 (in-state), $34,645 (out-of-state) -- University of Virginia: $12,006 (in-state), $38,018 (out-of-state) -- University of Michigan, Ann Arbor: $13,437 (in-state), $39,109 (out-of-state) As you can see, there's not a dramatic difference between tuition for private colleges and out-of-state tuition for public universities. There is a gap, however, between in-state tuition and private tuition. save some money by going to a Public Ivy rather than a traditional Ivy League school.

For instance, 2012-2013 tuition rates at the University of South Dakota (No. Still, there's something to be said for an academically-rigorous program and a degree that may carry more weight in your field. Because of private funding, Ivy League schools can be less expensive for a select group of high-performing applicants--especially those with high financial needs. Nonetheless, you'll want to apply to a variety of colleges, including some public schools that are lower on your list and private schools that may be a financial or academic reach. When dreaming of an education couched in ivied halls, decades of history and excellent academics, look beyond the traditional list of Ivy League colleges to today's top public schools. You might be surprised how affordable an ivy-style education can be.
