    It's New York City, everything is expensive. Go into Brooklyn or Jersey if you want to save money, it's pretty easy to do.

    I can only speak for Pace Performing Arts, I can't speak for other majors. Pace is expensive, but they're very generous with scholarship, grant, and financial aid money. I pay only a couple thousand out of pocket per year. The rest is covered by scholarships, grants, or loans. The Pace Performing Arts Department certainly gives you bang for your buck. The education I'm getting is helping me develop my talent immensely and at the same time is giving me connections to the professional theatre world. My professors are working in the industry and what I'm learning is of the utmost importance to my career. Most people I know in non-performing arts majors feel the same, but I can't speak for everyone.

    Pace University is a very upscale university and for the location and services that are provided, the cost is understandable, but not realistic.

    At Pace you are really paying most for the name of the school and the education level of the professors. The education is elite and the networking provided is worth it.

    It's quite expensive for most, but it's the most reasonable compared to other private universities in New York City.
