Tuition is $63,530 at Duke. That's a KICK in the balls unless you're the son of a millionaire. I like Duke, but can't imagine that kind of cash. I guess it's like that at most/many places now. WTF am I going to do if my nephew and niece decide all that "brain washing" has taken hold, and they want to go to Duke when it's time to pick a school? They are only 1 and 3 now, so I can only imagine what it will cost when they are ready for college!

Things were a little different in 1997 for my 36 year old brother (now living 13 doors down from Steph Curry in Orinda CA).
