    The education was absolutely worth it. If you can I would take the hard math and sciences at community college during the summer. These courses are created to let the med students excel and everyone else struggle. You'll save your GPA dropping on a 5 hour course that way. Housing wise, it is much cheaper to get an apartment with about three people in the place. I found the best bang for the buck was east of Lincoln Ave in Urbana. The area is very nice, quieter than other neighborhoods, rent is cheaper, apartments seem nicer, and you are close to Urbana.

    Yes, definitely. I got in-state tuition, and this was the cheapest school out all my options. Also, side note: for groceries, try carpooling with someone and go to Meijer/Walmart/Target. I don't have a car, and so I get all of mine from County Market/Walgreens, and it's so expensive!

    UIUC is incredibly expensive for a state school. If you're in-state and in the engineering program, you're looking at approximately 34k per year if you live in the dorms. Most people move out after their freshman or sophomore years, and that will save them around 5k per year. It is less expensive to attend the colleges of business or art or music. Scholarships are generally not given out to freshman who aren't minorities.

    Illinois is considered a little bit more expensive than the average public school, but if you take into account what illinois has to offer, it is worth it.
