The Project on Student Debt's recent report (PDF) on student debt and the class of 2009 examined which schools left their students owing the most money -- and which schools left students with their pockets a little fuller.

According to the report, members of the class of 2009 graduated school owing an average of $24,000 -- a six percent increase from the previous year.
