    Good financial aid, but I would have taken some debt and a good experience over no debt and the experience I am getting. I am willing to pay for quality. I can handle a little debt if I get a good experience. You can not buy a new undergrad experience in 10 years. This is your one shot.

    I have been a member of the SPCS/SGA for close to five years and have worked with dedicated and outstanding individuals. This Association participates in worthwhile endeavors to the University, its students and the community. I have encountered amazing colleagues, professors and made some great friends. It has been an pleasurable experience.

    It seems like you're paying more for the constant updates UR is doing to campus buildings and facilities than for anything else. The tuition is a lot higher than other private universities in the area � generally, the out-of-state tuitions at public universities and the tuitions at other private universities are around $30,000, where UR spikes to about $45,000. Room and board bring the cost up to almost $60,000. Most students receive financial aid, but because the cost is so high, a lot of students come from very overtly rich families. I don't think UR's academics really stand up to those kinds of costs, but it has been called the Ivy League University of the South.
