    I got blessed with scholarships but thats not the case for everyone. However, the school for being a private school does an amazing job making sure that students are able to attend the school and not be in debt for life.

    I will stay neutral on my rating but this is a VERY expensive school and even though I have a very strong GPA and an above average ACT I was given next to nothing in scholarship money. I have applied to many colleges in Indiana and surrounding States and Hope by far was the least generous.

    As a private college, Hope can be rather expensive, but decent need-based and merit-based aid can be provided upon acceptance. At the very least, a Hope degree is not at all a waste of time; academics are taken very seriously, the college has a great reputation, and there is always something to do on campus or in Holland. While schools do exist that carry more prestige or are more well-known, I honestly have yet to meet a Hope graduate who was not satisfied with his or her experience. Fair warning: it's a bad idea to throw money at a school like Hope without the intention to give it your all. Professors are helpful, enormous resources are available to you, and coursework is meaningful, but in the end, that bang for the buck rests on your effort.
