    This is very subjective, but the school is incredibly expensive for, what I would call, an acceptable education. If you do your research and pick the nicest professors, of which there are many, you will have an above average education that might suit you. However, there are too many other personal factors to consider in order to determine if you think this school is worth the price tag.

    I do believe that you are getting what you pay for. They automatically offer academic scholarships, and then of course if you do music or sports or art there are more scholarships for that as well. They really work with you and it's easy to go here without being in too much debt after college.
