    As was discussed in another thread, recruiting foreign students is more than cost recovery. Prestige, is an important factor. If ITT can pull this off then good for them.

    I looked at the figures. $407 a month plus a pad is pretty small samosas - even in India. In my home town, PhD students in high-value fields can often wangle a stipend of about $40K Canadian annually. That's over $8 a week US! :)

    I'm told the entry to middle-class city living (200 million plus) in India starts nearer to 3 times that $407.

    Actually, ITT schools were shuttered on Sept 6, 2016 - ten days BEFORE the bankruptcy filing on Sept. 16th 2016. Sorry.

    My apology, it should be IIT. Itt is history.
