    The bang for the buck at this school is incredible. The educational experience is constantly becoming more revered in the state, and around the country. The tuition spent here will not break your bank, and secure a job after college. It's the win-win situation all collge students desire.

    Although Tennessee is an expensive University to attend I have to say that it's worth your money. With the amount of free events,goodies and food that the University presents to you on a daily basis you shouldn't have to pay for much. It's a common saying that if you pay for food your first two weeks at Tennessee you're doing it wrong because free stuff is thrown at you. Also you get a great education and become apart of a great support system while attending the University.

    It's on the higher side for out of state students, but for me, UT is definitely the best option. It's not cheap, but not as expensive as a private school while presenting so many academic and career opportunities.

    Compared to several universities in East Tennessee, UT has a bad reputation for being a little pricey for those who aren't eligible for much financial aid. My advice to anyone that is struggling with rounding up scholarship money for college, get out there and apply, apply, apply, because that's the only way you are going to get what you want. As far as the bang for the buck, you get out of it what you put in. As I have said before, UT is full of potential opportunities and you're going to get your money's worth... You just have to figure out what is right for you.
