    I feel like I am getting a great education for my money, however services for students could be a bit better, especially the counseling services.

    Plain and simple, Wooster is expensive. I cry inside when I look at my loans estimate. However, if you're from an average household you're probably paying about the same amount at Wooster as you are anywhere else, if not probably a little more. I'm paying for about $2.5k more per year than my other choice college, but given the rigorous coursework, the opportunities I've been given and my ability to turn just a major into my major, it's been a wonderful experience that I wouldn't give up for the world.

    Wooster is rather expensive, as most private liberal arts colleges are, but offers many financial aid opportunities. A large portion of admitted students are automatically eligible for a merit scholarship worth 1/4 of tuition. Many students are eligible for scholarships worth up to 1/2 of tuition, and some are even eligible for up to 3/4 of tuition. The quality of education that students receive is superb, and a degree from the College of Wooster opens many doors for further education and job opportunities.

    Ugh. The college is great and all, as I've tried to make clear in the previous sections, but I don't know if /anything/ is really worth $50,000 every single year (with an tuition that's increased about $10,000 in the past 5 years). A lot of people going here can't pay full tuition, or even half or a third of tuition, and Wooster advocates having excellent Financial Aid. Freshman year, sure, the Financial Aid packet was excellent. But my tuition has gone up by $10,000 since (I'm a rising junior), and the college says they can't do anything to help. Wooster also recently got a Fiske Best Buy award and there's a lot of hype about it. Myself and many friends of mine think it's largely undeserved.
