    Yes it is an expensive school, but they offered a lot of scholarship opportunity. It would be better if the meal plan was not mandatory and there was more off campus housing.

    VERY EXPENSIVE! Drew is a great school overall regards to it's problems. I know for sure that I chose the right school. Several set backs from first semester put me in a position I will not discuss but I did step out of my rut second semester. The tuition may seem a little pricey for some but don't let it ruin your chances of attending. You're always welcome here on our campus and we value everyone who steps foot on this campus. Drew makes anyone feel at home. Drew University, although not an ivy league has rigorous academics that challenges the mind, body and spirit of an individual. Fostering learning and growth through innovative ways that each student can share with.

    Honestly, you could probably go to a respectable school for cheaper, but Drew does offer a lot of scholarships. I barely pay anything but I am still struggling. The education Drew offers is highly respected, however, you will wonder how certain classmates were accepted (there is a high acceptance rate).
