    College is expensive for everyone no matter where you go. Lots of chances to succeed at Umass, though.

    There are a lot of different majors to chose from and the tuition/fees are cheaper than a lot of private schools. Also for students that want to become a veterinary, this school offers an animal farm so the students get to work with animals, not many schools have that option.

    As an out of state student, UMass is more expensive than it is for in state students. However, I am in love with my school and would not trade it for the world. There are ways around paying for college and scholarship money. It's not impossible to go to the financial aid office and ask about how to go about paying for the following year, as I have done this myself. But I believe that my time here is worth the money.

    If you're in-state it's worth it, but out-of-staters would be better off going to a private school with an estimated yearly expense of $40k to go here.
