    Over 50% of the student body receives financial aid. Financial aid is generally good, but don't be afraid to talk to anyone in the Financial Aid Office - they are really kind and knowledgeable. It is expensive, but for the world-class education and connections you make, I think it's a wonderful investment.

The education is amazing however, and the financial aid department is most accommodating to those who demonstrate financial need. They truly want to make this top-notch college education possible for those who are motivated.
