accepted here and planning to attend soon
I feel like the money is worth going to a school like Washington University in St. Louis. You get a quality education, a nice place to rest your head, and an environment that's very active. Also, while you do pay a lot to go to Wash. U., they give it back to the students. For example, there's a fund set aside for new clubs or organizations. There are tons of scholarships for incoming freshmen and research students. The U-pass is included in the tuition, which basically means that students get to take the metro for free during the school year if they have their pass on them. Basically, it's worth it.
