UC Berkeley Law & MBA Tuition Increase

One good argument for doing a graduate degree sooner rather than later is that it gets more expensive over time. This expense can be measured in terms of opportunity costs (lost income) and simple cost of tuition. The following is just one example of the latter.

According to The Daily Californian, the Regents of the University of California, approved a large fee increase for both Berkeley's Law School and Business School:

According to the regental item, total fees for Boalt will spike to $30,931 in 2008-09 and could reach $40,906 in 2010-11, up from $26,897 this year.

Total fees for the Haas graduate program will jump to $30,913 in the coming year and could hit $40,882 by 2010-11, up from this year’s $26,881.

According to the Associated Press, these increases are being introduced selectively throughout the UC system:
The increases, under which some campuses will be charging more than lesser-known branches, were a departure from the tradition of having more-or-less uniform fees by discipline across the 10-campus system.
