    Though it's a wonderful educational opportunity, I consider it quite overpriced. I come from a middle class family and feel like I am always drowning in debt thinking of paying for this and law school. Scholarships only get you so far.

    Centre does an amazing job of offering tons of scholarships, financial aid options, and resources to just about any student that applies. The Centre Guarantee says that you'll graduate in 4 years with the chance to study abroad and work at an internship--or the 5th year is free.
