    Drake is an outstanding university and a great place to achieve your degree, however the tuition is constantly increasing because of the few students who attend Drake since it is a private university.

    Drake is expensive, but so are most other private colleges. I am no expert on the matter, but Drake has been awarded multiple awards from independent reviewers - some of which include being the best value in the Midwest. The great thing about Des Moines is that the cost of living as well as entertainment is fairly low.

    This school is well respected. When looking for a job, people will see that you went to a small private college that is not known to be easy. It has an academic rigor competitive to many other private schools. The cost is lower than others and there are scholarships for academics.

    Drake is fairly expensive, but there is a 99% job placement and many Drake students get internships very early. Drake does not only offer a quality education, it offers business connections and resources that are useful in the real world.
