    Although this school is pricey I believe that education should never have a price range and that I know Alvernia will give me a great education. This school is worth paying the amount of money I have to pay.

    I think this school is very worth the money, especially for healthcare majors!

    It is pretty darn expensive for a kid who had neither parents graduate college and only one has a job, but if you're well off, then go for it!! But the less fortunate, don't fear: I got lots of aid. And if you go crazy looking for scholarships, then you'll probably be fine!! However, I do think that this school is going to be worth every penny because of all the events, trips, services, and everything pays off for the big tuition.

    I think the money that I spent to go to Alvernia for my bachelors degree was worth every last penny. I got more than an education at Alvernia, I learned what the most important values in life are and right living.
