UMaine to students: Pay more, get less

Yep, going to UMaine (or any of its campuses) is going to cost even more next year:

Heading to Orono? Up 5.5 percent to $10,142.

UMaine-Machias? Up 5 percent to $7,110.

And in between.

Those are still cheaper than any other state school in New England. But when you're slashing programs and not cutting administrators, charging students more for less is pretty crappy. Perhaps it's worth paying more at those other places...
