RE: NYTimes.com: College May Become Unaffordable for Most in U.S.

But just to show you the differences even within the same 
conference, the Big Ten, Penn State gets just over 33% of its 
operating income from tuition and fees (the highest tuition of 
any major public university), but less than 10% from the state. 
Obviously, the two are interrelated.  Penn State also claims, 
however, to return $22 in economic impact on the state for every 
dollar in state appropriations.
