    For some of the best education in America, it's quite worth it. I know for me, a New Englander, the cost of coming here or Norwich University was dead even with travel. I chose here because of the atmosphere and the overall feeling of success that every cadet portrayed, the small class sizes and quality of education are a plus.

    It is extremely expensive, and most of us don't understand why. There are a lot of building projects going on, but we will never see them completed or benefit from them. Yes, we are getting a good education, but the price really shouldn't be that high and rising every year.
