    The school really makes sure you get what you are paying for, and professors like to make sure you know this.

    Hope is pretty expensive, but it is really a very good school. Relationships with professors and other people are ones you can keep for a lifetime. The academics are very strong, and there are so many opportunities. Especially if you are able to get a few scholarships (from the school or elsewhere) it's worth it! Also, if you are work-study awarded, there are lots of opportunities for jobs. And if you are not, there are still opportunities for jobs! (there's a whole website for it!). One thing I always tell prospectives is, go to the school that's right for you. And if Hope is it, don't worry about the money (as much as is possible) and embrace the opportunities!!
