    I don't need to say much, because NC State is constantly rated in the top 5 or 10 schools with best value. We have so many resources here at State, and it is WELL worth the money.

    Totally worth the money, IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT. It is a land grant college, so half of you tuition is paid for; but, it is the half that you don't see. It is expensive. The only reason why I'm here now is because of a pack promise scholarship. So do very good in high school, they'll pay for four years for you!

    Excellent value at NC State. NC State has consistently been ranked as one of the best valued schools in America. I can't overstate how great a deal you will receive by attending this school. The kind of exposure you receive here is on par with many ivy league schools.
