From niche.com. Listing only the Top 15 here and the net cost to attend.

https://www.niche.com/colleges/search/best-colleges/s/ohio /

1. Ohio State (19,747)
2. Case Western (38,166)
3. Kenyon (38,927)
4. Dayton (29,933)
5. Cincinnati (20,877)
6. Denison (38,833)
7. College of Wooster (24,934)
8. Ohio University (20,496)
9. Ohio Northern (25,006)
10. Cedarville (25,380)
11. Miami (24,616)
12. Oberlin (44,689)
13. Bowling Green (16,684)
14. Baldwin Wallace (26,577)
15. Kent State (18,947)

OSU I think is up there because of costs and Big Ten membership is a good sell for parents. Bowling Green is doing well lately I believe on cost mainly.

Ohio though is ranked ahead of Miami which is all that counts.

It's obscene that Miami thinks it can charge 25% more than OSU/Ohio/UC, and then they whine and complain and spin why they're down to #133 in the USNWR rankings. If that pipeline of affluent kids from the Chicago suburbs who didn't get into the University of Illinois dries up, they could be in serious, serious trouble.

I looked at that site and found it very interesting that they go into detail and break down net cost to attend by family income. Here's what they came up with. If you're coming from a family that makes less than 75K/year, Ohio, UC and Miami simply can't come close to competing with the aid package that OSU will offer.

Ohio:
<$30k $13,944/ year
$30-48k $15,173/ year
$49-75k $19,283/ year
$76-110k $21,985/ year
$110k+ $22,649/ year

Miami:
<$30k $14,029/ year
$30-48k $16,432/ year
$49-75k $22,742/ year
$76-110k $25,772/ year
$110k+ $28,471/ year

UC:
<$30k $14,344/ year
$30-48k $16,397/ year
$49-75k $19,980/ year
$76-110k $24,209/ year
$110k+ $25,019/ year

OSU:
<$30k $7,759/ year
$30-48k $8,932/ year
$49-75k $14,619/ year
$76-110k $22,494/ year
$110k+ $26,051/ year

UC was #142 in the USNWR and one spot below Miami when you factor in ties. If they fell below UC in the USWNR they will have a lot of ticked off alumni that I can guarantee.

With an average applicant of 3.9 at Miami I'm not sure how much of drop their profile can take. Keep in mind Ohio right now is 3.8. Tried to pull the private schools by comparison from the USWNR.

Kenyon 3.9
Case Western 3.8
John Carroll 3.8
Ohio Northern 3.8
Otterbein 3.8
Dayton 3.8
Oberlin 3.7
Ohio Wesleyan 3.7
Wooster 3.7
Xavier 3.7
Ursuline 3.6
Findlay 3.6
Ashland 3.6
Mount Vernon 3.6
Mount Union 3.5
Marrieta 3.5
Mt. Joseph 3.5
Capital 3.5
Hiram 3.4
Muskingum 3.3

Most of the private schools are not even posting their stats and the ACT range that starts at 16. Buf for the ones that do you can see that the battle zone is 3.8 or a 3.7 applicant. How much could Miami then drop? 3.8 or 3.7? Can't really be below that when they are discounting tuition relative to those expensive privates.

Miami has a big rep in business and its 50% greek. A certain student will always go for that.

I am too lazy to check. Miami at one point got rid of in-state and out-of-state tuition. What they did was give in-state students a bogus scholarship for being accepted and this dropped the enrolling in-state student down to about the same tuition as in-state OSU. I couldn't believe that Fiami made such a big deal out of someone being accepted getting this honorable scholarship when every single person was getting the same rate reduction! It probably fooled a few 18 year olds and parents who were excited they got dollars off the price.

This reminds me what the Ohio History Connection (formerly Historical Society) does with historical markers. First they quote you an inflated price, then they award you a "grant" which reduces the price somewhat. However, if you deal directly with the company in Marietta that makes the markers you can get an even cheaper price. The company is Sewah Studios, and they make historical markers for placement all over the nation. It's a big operation. And, when you deal directly with Sewah you can get your own organization's logo on the marker and not the OHC's.

I remember that. It was a lame p.r. stunt meant to try and pretend they are a private university, and it disappeared pretty quickly.
