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.

    Bali Nine Drug Smugglers Taken To Execution Jail

    Two Australian men convicted of drug smuggling in Indonesia have been taken from a prison in Bali to an island where they face execution by firing squad. Myuran Sukumaran, 33, and Andrew Chan, 31, were found guilty in 2005 of being the ringleaders of the so-called "Bali Nine" drug smuggling gang. Australia has been pursuing a campaign to save the men - but the Indonesian president has refused to grant them clemency. The case has heightened diplomatic tensions between the two countries with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott saying he was "revolted" by the planned executions.

    German pensioner needs drill to dig for Nazi-looted Amber Room

    By Madeline Chambers BERLIN (Reuters) - A pensioner has started digging in Germany's western Ruhr region for the Amber Room, a priceless work of art looted by Nazis from the Soviet Union during World War Two and missing for 70 years, but says he needs a new drill to help him. Dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World, the Amber Room was an ornate chamber made of amber panels given to Tsar Peter the Great by Prussia's Friedrich Wilhelm I in 1716. Now 68-year-old pensioner Karl-Heinz Kleine says he thinks the chamber is hidden under the town of Wuppertal, deep in western Germany's industrial Ruhr area. After analysing the evidence, Kleine has concluded that Erich Koch, who was the Nazis' chief administrator in East Prussia, may have secretly dispatched it to his home town.
