    SUNY Cortland is definitely worth the price you pay and more. It's a public school in a private school setting. The location is not so bad and the education here is perfect. I believe that if you are looking for a school that is affordable as well as diverse and good based on academics, then Cortland is a good school for that.

    Cortland has so much to offer and I have rarely heard anyone say they wish they went to another school.

    All SUNY schools are very much worth your money. At the major universities, i.e Ithaca College or Cornell, you spend 30,000 a semester as apposed to 4,000 for the exact same education, not going to a SUNY school is just unwise in my opinion.

    Money is tight and anything could help. I know when I graduate that the field I am going to is tough, but I will attempt it and do my best. My bang for buck could be a little cheaper in my opinion.
