    If you're a liberal arts major, UConn is not worth the investment. If you're STEM or Business, probably definitely worth it. Personally, as a student who has excelling grades and a near-perfect GPA with tons of extracurriculars I have applied to countless scholarships and still have to pay a price that is not worth it. If you're liberal arts, you're probably better off at a different university with what you're paying here. UConn does not cherish or value the liberal arts in the least.

    UConn is expensive and the financial sucks. Even with full tuition paid, private loans are needed, even as a CT resident and everything. Most colleges in general would getma one star though because they are so expensive however there is definitely more out there than what UConn has to offer.

    The cost for attending UConn is rising rapidly, which is freaking out everyone here- if it goes up too much more, it's going to seem unfair that we don't have like gold-plated ceilings at least.

    At Uconn you truly are getting an affordable but, priceless education at the same time if that makes any sense. The school's out of state rate is very competitive with a private school, and their in state tuition price is really low. I live in Connecticut, and this was the best option for me financially, by far. You get the college experience and education of a private university for half the price.

    The school itself is not as expensive but other services and dining around campus can be pricey.
