    I'll be honest, I'm paying $43,000 a year for Alfred. That's really steep, but I am very happy with my choice. Alfred is very high up in the Nation's best colleges and it partners with good graduate schools, like Cornell and Yale. There are so many fun and free events to go to that it is worth it, AND Alfred is a private University so on top of all the government aid that you receive, Alfred gives out grants and scholarships left and right! Really I only ended up paying $2,100 after all my grants and scholarships =) (That's including books!)

    It was a bit pricey for my economic situation but they most certainly tried to bridge the gap. They we're neck and neck with my first choice school, which was pretty amazing. The only real draw backs where the location and my not wanting to take extra loans.

    Great graduate program for my field (School Psych) which is both reasonable, funded, and has a great history.
