    Mercer offers scholarships to a huge percentage of students. Regardless, Mercer is the best decision I have ever made. You cannot put a price on what Mercer has to offer.

    The tuition is steep but financial aid helps. Plus I would rather pay more to attend Mercer than paying less to be anywhere else.

    It is very expensive but when you tell someone you are going to Mercer their reaction is priceless as it is a very prestigious school.

    Definitely worth the money. Mercer has a lot of weight in its name. So if you get the chance, I'd say go for it!
