    School is expensive, we know. Especially a private school like Etown College. However, the experience I'm getting from attending a school such as this one, and the academic power is definitely worth the loans at the end of your four (or five, fellow Occupational Therapy majors!) years. There are so many opportunities that arise when attending such a small-- but definitely well-known in the area-- school like Elizabethtown.

    It is a fairly expensive institution. I feel like it is slightly overpriced but the education is definitely above average. I have enjoyed my time here and believe it is a good institution.

    It's pretty expensive, but not as expensive as an Ivy League. It's only the bang for the buck if you take advantage of your four years. Passing your classes and partying every weekend will not get you your bang for the buck. You have to join clubs, attend the various activities around campus, and GET INVOLVED!

    Very expensive school but they help you out with grants and scholarships. Also the counselling and one on one action you can get if you take advantage of it are a big plus.

    Tuition is a little expensive, but there is a good deal of financial aid available. Facilities and oppertunities on campus are vast, so the price is pretty much worth it.
