    This has got to be the coolest thing to happen to music education in the last 20 years.

    Yale School of Music goes Tuition-Free after a $100M donation

    If anyone finds a better link, please post it. The best link I found was on AOL, but you had to be signed in...

    That's awesome! How long will this last, d'you think? I mean, they can't just stop charging indefinitely... can they?

    Well, $23k (this year's tuition) goes into $100M 4,100 times. Assume, what, 100 students a year? That's 41 years. Even if they use some of the money for other things, you could still easily assume 35 years.

    And if the money from other places keeps coming in, then they just might be able to make that stretch for even longer.

    I wish this kind of thing happened to the schools I went to. It might make things easier.
