    Out of all of the schools I applied to, Reed was the most understanding. When they gave us less financial aid than we could afford, we contacted the admissions office, and they were able to double the amount they'd previously awarded me once we showed that we couldn't afford the original award they'd given us. Reed was still more expensive than going to my local state school but offers a lot that can't be found elsewhere.

    The education is great; you'll learn a lot, the classes are small, and the teachers are dedicated.

    Reed is expensive. Personally too expensive for me. But I think it is worth every penny. I will gladly be paying off student loans in years to come knowing that I received such a great education and so many opportunities

    As one of the pricier colleges in the nation, the financial aid Reed doles out may not be satisfactory for many students. Therefore, you should be on the lookout for outside scholarships. But does a Reed experience match up to its hefty tuition? The answer really depends on what you make of your time there. Hum 110, the Honor Principle, and the thesis parade are just some of the many things that make Reed distinct. Classes there will also likely make you grow as both a learner and a thinker. The neighborhood around the school isn’t exactly the best college town (although it does conduce studying), and some residence halls are shabbier than others. But overall if you prefer a quaint and offbeat school, then Reed is worth considering.

    One of the more expensive schools out there- but for a good reason. Their need-based aid program, however, ensures that people who deserve to be there can make it happen.
