The Hatchet’s editorial board applauds the progress GW has made towards becoming more affordable, and hopes that it continues in the future.
For years, The George Washington University was synonymous with the phrase “the most expensive college in the country.” Though GW lost the No. 1 spot to Sarah Lawrence College in 2008 according to various lists, this is the first year that Forbes did not rank GW in its top 10 list. It is promising that GW no longer sits among the 10 most expensive schools in the country, and this is a result of University administrators working to make GW a more affordable school. However, GW is only $25 away from jumping back into the top 10, so we hope that GW continues to work toward becoming even more affordable.
