    Tuition is expensive but yet they are there to see you finish fast and learn and you get to know your professors on an individual basis and they will know your name.

    Expensive, but they give a lot of academic and talent scholarships. You can get money for being smart or for being talented in theatre tech, acting, singing, and instrumental music (not sure if that's still around).

    I feel it is a little overpriced comapred to other school's that are just as credited. Despite that your receiving a great private education with 1on1 attention from teachers.

    This is overall a pretty good school. Make it what you want, just be active and enjoy it while it lasts. Tuition is about $45,000+. Financial Aid is fair, but make sure you have some cushion money for emergencies and possible raises in tuition. Apply for scholarships and if you take out loans make sure you know what you are really doing. You can always apply for work study or find a job on or off campus.
