I'll concede that only non-profit institutions with hefty private endowments (or alternatively, ample public support) can afford to offer programs at prices substantially below cost. And I think you will agree that there are, in fact, some non-profits (the wealthier and more prestigious ones) that actually do that. But I'll concede that many non-profits have more limited financial resources, and so the best that they can do is offer programs more or less at cost, i.e. break even. But if we agree that many non-profits run on a break-even basis -- rather than below cost -- then it's still hard for me to see the basis for a claim that people are profiting from non-profits (as in Post # 187 above), which is the only reason that I entered this overly long thread. Who exactly is profiting at institutions that break even ? It's been noted before many for-profit schools, even the largest ones, seem to offer a surprisingly limited selection of majors. Probably the vast majority of for-profit degrees are in either business, psychology, computer/IT, criminal justice/security, or education. I agree that there is more likely to be greater diversity at non-profits -- with the most diversity at the ones with the biggest endowments.
