    McDaniel gives out lots of scholarship and hardly anyone pays full price.

    Way to expensive for what the student receives after orientation week. Don't forget that during orientation week, they are still trying to make the school seem so good. It's all a front. Although I will say the financial aid is really good here compared to other schools.
