    Ohio Northern is a private school that really delivers on it's promise to get you a job upon graduating, and has the numbers to prove it. Just look it up for up to date numbers that typically are around 95% job placement within 6 months

    In the academic aspect of everything, it is definitely worth the money. However, the food and such.. well.. not so much.

    This Bang for the buck relies on which major the student in. For example, the characteristic 0-6 Pharmacy program may be worth more money, compared to the 2-4 program that most other Pharmacy schools offer. With a hefty price tag, it may seem daunting for students to even attempt to apply. However, admissions and financial aid end up giving lots of scholarship to those deserving.

    Many of the majors there probably do not pay up well for students who do not have most of their tuition covered by scholarships. The school is very expensive, and many students find themselves transferring from just realizing it.

    Definitely apply for scholarships, and if you get those then this school won't have a problem with providing you with a great education for your money.
