Yes, SNU is expensive, but it is totally worth it! I truly believe that the experience someone gets at SNU is worth the money. It is a priceless experience actually. Money was a really big concern for me in choosing colleges, but I finally decided that I did not want money to stop me from having a great experience, and I am so glad! If money is an issue there are ways around it. SNU has great teachers, residence halls, community, campus, and opportunities. The only thing that I think could be better considering the price is the food. It is not bad, but considering what other (cheaper) colleges or universities offer, it is a little bit lacking. There is also a lack of food or study places for late nights.
