Yesterday I posted results from very simple college rankings formula for liberal arts college. An anon-mouse noted that the results only applied to students who receive institutional aid, so I created another version below for students who don't get aid.
Here the Benefit/Cost is simply instruction dollars per FTE as reported by IPEDS divided by the stated tuition and fees reported for the same year. Berea College is in a class all its own here, with its unique student-work model. My cursory inspection of the admissions site at Brigham Young--Hawaii didn't reveal the secret to their model.
You'll notice some familiar names underneath those two. Williams give students back 90 cents on the tution dollar for full-pays just in instruction. I listed all the schools who gave back at least 60% of tuition in instruction.
