It’s unclear whether going to a top college is worth the money. Tuition and fees at some top private universities can easily eclipse $50,000 per year. A lot of studies show that top tier schools give students the edge in their careers. But it’s easy to find advice that says the exact opposite. The average college graduate in 2016 already owes $37,172 in student loans—what's a little more? What do you think?

And a lot of people think college rankings don’t matter anyway. What matters is how much and how hard the student works when they go to school.
