    Good price I would say. Don't really have much to compare to, however friends at other schools pay more typically, especially if they are out of state.

    Being from Georgia, I pay out-of-state tuition, and even with that it's a better deal than going to the other schools I was admitted to. The academic programs are exceptional, you have access to incredible technology and resources, along with advisers and professors who guide you to your success. And success is priceless.

This university is doing cutting edge things, and it is so important that the president of the United States has visited twice in the last two years!
