Georgetown University Tuition: $100

Are you getting ready to go back to school? Have you paid your tuition bill yet? In 1911, your tuition bill would have been $100 (not sure if that’s per semester or full year). Damn, that’s 33% more than Catholic University at the time! Rip off.

Today, if you’re going to law school, you’re forking over $48,835 (#FML). If you’re in med school, you’re responsible for $45,645. Hopefully you reeeeaally want to be a lawyer or doctor, because it ain’t cheap, my friend.
