    Read up on the list of suggested items to bring for your dorm. They warn to not buy all your books at once as they're all available at the book store and you'll need to have more info on what translation would be best to use. Coordinate with your roommate so you don't bring the same things. Basic bang for the buck advice.

    Expensive. Very expensive. However, financial aid seems remarkably liberal and helpful, so don't get turned off by the sticker price, since you will almost certainly be paying less than that. Also, the college has just started a $7500 grant for all New Mexico resident freshman, regardless of need. Importantly, almost all of the seniors or recent graduates I have spoken to have told me that the experience was absolutely 100% worth it. Some have wished they could go do it all again, or that the program was longer than 4 years. Also: the college does not offer any scholarships or aid based on merit. If you think you will need additional aid beyond what the school and the government will award, you will need to find outside money.

    Of course it's extremely expensive! You need to believe in this education to be here, and definitely to pay for here. However, if you really want to be here, there are a multitude of options to help pay. The financial aid assistance, from my experience, was very good. We're talking 30,000 grants. Of course, it all depends on your aid package. But the fin-aid office people WILL work with you. They try very hard to do what they can and work with you and your situation, and deadlines are importan of course, but (like the rest of the campus) they are human beings who consider you as such and don't just cut you off and give up on you if you miss some stupid deadline. They will work with you. Another thing, also, is that there are several short-term job opportunities, and so far, always some sort of job opportunity. Of course having a car is extremely helpful for keeping your job options open. Work-study is also sort of difficult to get since there are not that many students here. There are few jobs because of the size of the campus, so you have to turn your fin aid info in AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. But there is always a work option. There's tons of people nearby who offer really good jobs at their houses, watching their kids, dog-walking, cleaning, etc... and we live in one of the richest areas of Santa Fe, so we're talking a bunch of wealthy folks who can give you easy jobs for pretty good hourly wages.

    You can be a Classics major at most schools (or, even join a book club) and still read the same books we do at St. John's. Will you come to the same realizations and have an entire community with the same common ground, no. If finances are a struggle, you may consider another school.
