"More than half of Duke students receive some form of financial assistance from the university, including 40 percent who receive need-based financial aid."
Which may be why tuition is so high for the rest, but as long as it's their money, it's their decision. I do think it's great that a truly deserving poor student has the same chance to anyone regardless of ability to pay.

I didn't know that about the needs-blind admissions policy. Very commendable.

yes, most schools tuition goes up 2.5%-5% however, they also try to lessen that margin with institutional funds....

Well worth the educational, cultural and other opportunities Duke offers. UNC Chapel Hill is rising in its reputation as well as its tuition. I think a 4% increase in Duke tuition is justified.
