    Not really worth the 50,000 dollars you spend for the dorms you live in but the education is pretty great.

    Etown is definitely on the more expensive side, but the school realizes this and most financial aid packages are generous and in the end most students don�t seem to pay too much more than students at less expensive schools. The financial aid counselors are also very helpful and willing to work with families, and I think the extra money is worth it to go to a school that is the right fit for you.

    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!
