    Could be more bang considering how much buck we pay, but they try really hard to make it worth it and it really is worth it.

    Lipscomb has a pretty high price tag because it is a private school, but it is so worth it. I would not trade my school for any other, no matter what the price difference was. The people at Lipscomb are fantastic as well as the teachers. Everyone genuinely cares for one another and that is priceless. Also the value of a degree from Lipscomb is very high, making the cost worth it as well.

    REALLY work on your ACT score. The average ACT score is 24, and GPA is 3.5 which is typically good, it's only AVERAGE here. If you can get it up to a 30, you can get a full tuition scholarship...which is awesome! But don't let it fool you, there are so many great things about Lipscomb. You need to visit before you make a decision. Even though the price tag is high, compared to other Christian Universities such as Belmont and Pepperdine, it's SO much cheaper. Sure, its still pretty high. (I mean 20k is around the student average per year of debt/payments, and that's OBVIOUSLY a pretty penny) but the price tag is worth the amazing experience you'll be getting. Don't let fear of debt keep you away from Lipscomb. Know that God will take care of your needs, and help you excel. :)
