    honestly, unless you want to come here for nursing, pre law, or something with music then don't waste you're money and time. granted, capital gives aid and scholarships to almost everyone who goes here, but it's still not worth how expensive this school is. the dorms for freshmen and sophomores are absolutely horrible and capital does nothing about them, they need new ones badly. there is never enough washers and dryers available and the rooms are small. the food here is terrible and the meal plans are very expensive. capital is basically a high school because of how small it is and the university does anything in their power to charge students extra money for the most minute things. like i said, unless you're coming here for nursing, pre law or music, don't waste your money.

    Ask about the specific cost of housing - you'll pay less per person if you room in a quad versus a double. Sit in on as many freshman/sophomore classes in your desired program as possible. Ask how many educators have been cut from your program in the last five years, and how many have been hired on.
