    SLC is very expensive but they give you a lot of financial aid if you like the campus and want to go you should apply and see how much money the scholarship committee will give you.

    Sarah Lawrence is extremely expensive, and often times you may be wondering where the money is going for. Dormitories are very outdated, as are the many facilities, and the lack of anything beyond mediocre dining options will be very bothering.

The professors and classes are amazing, I don't know of anywhere else you can go that is quite the same caliber.
