According to this story, a college in Oregon known for its liberal/lefty ways has decided not to admit students who need financial aid. As an anti-lefty, I find the hypocrisy funny. Nevertheless, I think they are probably making the right decision. Having graduated from a private university and a state university, I can positively state they both can offer a great education. While I preferred the private university, private universities are a luxury. If a student cannot afford to attend, he/she is probably better off at a one of our excellent state universities. Borrowing $100,000 to go to Reed University is a dismal investment.
