    For an In-state student, it is totally worth it. But an out-of state student may want to consider other colleges as well because out of state tuition is about the same as private colleges' tuition.

    Let's be real - UCLA is not cheap. There are a lot of seemingly pointless fees. While graduating with a degree from UCLA is advantageous in today's job market, it doesn't always guarantee success. How much bang you get for your buck really rests on if you choose to take advantage of all the free perks you get by being a student (gym access, pool access, rec center access, etc).

    Out-of-state tuition is rough, but what tuition isn't? As for the rest of your money, trust me it is going into a great school that you will earn a great education from. And some of that money goes to some free once in a lifetime events that UCLA puts on.

    The experience you get from UCLA is priceless. Your're making an investment on your future, so when your're older and successful, the price of school will definitely be worth it.

    Dormitory and tuition fee altogether aren't cheap as to say, but there are many opportunities for scholarship and financial aid. If you are a California resident, you should not be worried.
