    There is nowhere you can go to study outside of your dorm room alone because all public study areas are packed at all hours of the day. The school doesn't seem to care much about their students and the students seem to be interested in drinking more than anything else. The only students who try are those planning on going into grad school. There have also been an insane amount of student deaths and muggings at this school. Everything in super expensive, which I guess is okay for a lot of people because a majority of the student population come from rich families.

    Yeah, it's really expensive. Don't let that discourage you from applying! They give out a lot of need and merit based aid. I think the experience and education I'm receiving is worth the cost.

    It is an expensive school but with the generosity of the school in terms if financial aid and the opportunities you get in return, everything makes it worth the money you give the school.

    The financial aid office is not the best to deal with and they expect 60% of the efc to go to them in a family with two kids in college.
