    I am going to be in debt from Otterbein after graduation. It is definitely a pricey place. However, they offer scholarship opportunities and aide to students. I really think it is worth the money too. Otterbein offers so many opportunities for students and it is up to the students themselves to take advantage of it. I have had a good experience here thus far and plan to extend myself further to really take advantage of opportunities and make this education worth it.

    I feel that I'm paying a pretty decent amount, but that when I graduate, it will be worth it . I will be graduating with 2 degrees, and hopefully those will be enough to get me into a vet school.
