Ohio Northern University turns out some of the most indebted students in the country, according to a astonishing profile in the NYT.Andrew Martin and Andrew Lehren interview one girl who graduated with $120,000 in debt and a degree in marketing (via @JimPethokoukis). She’s already working two restaurant jobs and plans to move back in with her parents, who have co-signed on the debt.

Still Ohio Northern, which costs $50,000 per year, isn’t the worst school in the country—far from it.

We checked Payscale’s return on investment index and found that the university ranked 252 with a 30-year ROI of $239,900.

There are 996 schools with even worse returns on investments.

At the bottom of the list is Savannah College of Art And Design with a 30-year ROI of negative $189,000. Negative! In fact there are hundreds of schools with negative 30-year returns on investment.
