    For all the programs they offer and the price (especially if you're in-state) you can't beat it. They hand out scholarships like crazy.

    If in-state, its super cheap obviously. Its pretty cheap for out-of-state also in comparison to most other schools which is why there are so many kids from states like NY and NJ.

    The price is definitely worth it. You get what you pay for. There are so many different activities to do; there's always something going on for free. Many times the dorms will have parties for its residents and give out snacks, among other things. Also, while I was attending, I needed to see a therapist. WVU offers therapy totally for free to its students, which was extremely helpful, because therapy can be expensive. I feel confident about the price I'm paying to go to this school, and I believe it will pay off in the future.

    I pay instate tuition so I get a very good price for my education opposed to if I had went out of state. In state is right around 6000 and out is something like 17000. The dorms and meal plan are pricey but not to bad. It is cheaper if you can get a house or apartment and rent it most of the time though.
