    An incredible academic system, friendly and helpful staff (if a bit uncoordinated), and opportunities at every corner make this school absolutely worth the cost. And, as a bonus, most students I know get a grant that covers about half of tuition, so that's great! Totally worth it.

    Depending on how much aid you get, Hampshire might not be worth it. If you don't get large amounts of financial aid and scholarships, you should look into the other Five Colleges - you can take classes at Hampshire, but you foot about half the bill.

    For my entire life I have been looking for a school which I genuinely fit into. For the first time, I was able to find a place where I can be me. It is an exciting, invigorating feeling. I am not rich whatsoever. However, I believe that the education I will get at Hampshire will triumph over any money value. The people I have met already have impacted my life so dramatically. I found what I wanted to spend the rest of my life doing. I am learning the way I want to. I choose what I am interested in. It is worth every penny.
