In this Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012 photo, a statue of George Washington stands near the University of Texas Tower at the center of campus, in Austin, Texas. If colleges were automobiles, the University of Texas at Austin would be a Cadillac: a famous brand, a powerful engine of research and teaching, a pleasingly sleek appearance. Even the price is comparable to the luxury car's basic model: In-state tuition runs about $40,000 for a four-year degree. (AP Photo/Eric Gay)
