    College Grotto has released a list of the 100 most expensive schools, and Drexel University is sitting pretty right at the top.

    With a net price of $40,491 per year, it beats out American University, New York University, and The New School.

    The figures were determined determined by subtracting the average need-based grant from the total cost of attendance for the 2011-2012 school year.
