    small class sizes, and the people who work here really try and help you as well as understand you. they are concerned with your well being and you are not seen as just a couple thousand dollars making your way through life.

    I've stressed this over and over, they don't even accept Cal grants. Another thing the college at financial aid won't tell you. You have to be messing up somewhere to not be able to take in Cal grants, means the college might not be accerated, too many transfer out or students not finding a real job once graduating. From what I saw, more then half of graduates work at the college just so the college can say hey our students do have jobs

    Of course! Menlo College is the Stanford quality education without the Stanford price. (most full-time professors posses a Graduate degree from Stanford, Berkeley, Harvard, Yale, etc.)

    The college charges a flat rate for tuition, so you will pay the same amount whether you take 12 credits or 19. The college also offers a dining plan along with housing costs. Clubs are free to join (sometimes you have to pay $5 for special activities) and they help alleviate the boredom you would otherwise face on the weekends.

    menlo is a pricey school but you receive so much financial help from the school. they award scholarships for students with high academics in high school so it's worth it in that part. you also receive financial aid which helps eliminate high costs for this school.
