    For me, I was fortunate enough to obtain scholarships and grants to help pay for school. SMU also provides a grant for a large portion of the students and offers scholarships anyone can apply for.

    If your parents make over 120,000 you're not going to get anything from the government or from Saint Mary's other than your basic merit based scholarship, which isn't that great. I will be walking away with at least 70,000 dollars in debt. Also don't even consider moving off campus, because you'll lose a lot of your little aid you do get.

    You are paying for a quality Catholic, Lasallian education. It is a little more money, but you have a lot of opportunities at this school.

    The professors, entire staff, and students make the money worth it. There are many things to do at Saint Mary's as well.
