    This is the most expensive school I'm applying for, and they don't call it the University of Spoiled Children for nothing: daddy will buy his little prince and princess their acceptance to this school, and there will be one of these people in every single one of your classes if you aren't the bought slot yourself. The education you get is a good one, but the price seems a little high, especially because you can get a similar schooling experience at UCLA (excluding class size as a factor). There is a lot of wealth endowed into this school, and it seems completely ridiculous to me that there are NO full tuition or full ride scholarships available for the amount of money flowing into the establishment. Sure, you can get one if you're a National Merit Scholar, but not everyone is, which makes this school practically impossible to afford without loads of student debt if you are a middle class individual with above average grades. And if you can pay for this, lucky you, because the 99% can't without their entire family being affected by the astronomical price tag.

    Good school overall, but there are better ones for a much lower cost.

    Pretty good - a lot of individual attention if you need it, writing center, math center, supplemental instruction. Engineering students also get free private tutoring and their own career center (and minorities and women get 100 pages of free printing every month through the center for engineering diversity) You can also apparently get free therapy (something like 12 sessions a year)
