    Brandeis is a very expensive university to attend but I do not regret my decision in the slightest. Especially if you're thinking of going to law school after undergrad, Brandeis has 99% admittance for those applying to law schools.

    There are pretty good perks and opportunities that Brandeis provides you, although the tuition and other fees are bit higher than other schools. But it also provides you with very generous financial aid so that you will be able to afford the school.

    Brandeis is worth the money due to its high job placement, professional and graduate school acceptance rate. However with one of the highest cost of attendance in the country, and the second highest in Massachusetts, I would at least expect the facilities to be more up to date than they are, the grounds to look nicer, and the food to be better. Frankly I don't see any justification for any University's tuition, room and board costing almost $60,000 (and rising!).
