How many students from your school take out loans?

A whopping 88 percent of students at the for-profit New England Institute of Art take out loans to cover the $33,104 annual price tag. At Oberlin College, where the net price per year is $34,797, only 40 percent of students have loans.

One might assume that Oberlin is merely more generous in allotting grants to its students. While 82 percent receive some form of grant or scholarship, which does need to be paid back, the $34,797 figure of attendance is calculated after subtracting those grants from the total cost of tuition, lodging, fees, books, and other expenses.

Every school that participates in the federal loan program reports figures like these to the Department of Education. The following interactive plots every school with at least 1,000 undergraduates by these two values: net cost of attendance after grants on the x axis and the percentage of students with loans on the y axis.

  • Co-Pilot 'Hid Sick Note On Day Of Alps Crash'
    Co-Pilot 'Hid Sick Note On Day Of Alps Crash'

    Prosecutors investigating the Germanwings plane crash have said there were indications the co-pilot hid an existing illness from his employers. Andreas Lubitz is  accused of deliberately flying the aircraft into a mountainside  shortly after preventing the captain from re-entering the cockpit. Lubitz had a sick note for the day the Airbus A320 came down in the French Alps during a flight from Barcelona to Dusseldorf but never told the airline, prosecutors said. The doctor's note, which would have prevented him from flying, was among several found torn-up during a search of his flat in Dusseldorf and it comes amid reports he was suffering from depression.

    PARIS (Reuters) - The co-pilot of a Germanwings jet that went down in the French Alps, killing 150 people, appears to have crashed the plane deliberately, a Marseille prosecutor said on Thursday. The German citizen, left in sole control of the Airbus A320 after the captain left the cockpit, refused to re-open the door and pressed a button that sent the jet into its fatal descent, the prosecutor told a news conference carried on live television.
