Which 2014 Sweet Sixteen NCAA Schools are the Most Expensive?April 1, 2014
March Madness Sweet Sixteen gets plenty of fans excited for the match ups and upsets. However, the tournament also draws plenty of attention to the actual schools. Here are the most expensive schools found in the Sweet Sixteen for 2014.
UCLA – $35,574
Of course, UCLA is well-known for basketball, but this is also one of the most expensive schools out there. They have won plenty of championships, tournaments and have been a huge hit on the court. However, if you’re not granted a scholarship, expect to spend over $35,000 per year to attend UCLA.
University of Dayton – $35,800
As an underdog, the University of Dayton has proven they are worthy of a Sweet Sixteen spot. They were only ranked at the 44th best team going into the tournament, but that has changed. They knocked off both in-state rival Ohio State and Syracuse to make the round of 16. However, students spend nearly $36,000 per year to cover their tuition at the University of Dayton.
University of Virginia – $39,844
Founded by President Thomas F. Jefferson in 1819, the University of Virginia is one of the most expensive schools which mad the Sweet Sixteen this year. They won the ACC tournament and were given a #1 seed, so it’s no surprise they are still in the tournament. However, the more than $40,000 per year students pay for tuition may come as a shock.
Stanford University – $43,245
As tournament over-achievers, Stanford University was not only one of the lowest seeds, but also the most expensive school in the Sweet Sixteen. A year at Stanford cost more than $43,000 for tuition.
All of these schools are expensive and the students will tell you, it’s well worth the cost.
