    Although the cost of attendance is very high, don't let that number scare you. Baylor gives out good financial aid packages and hands out scholarships like tic tacs. It is worth the amount each student pays because the experiences are like no other.

    The education you receive at Baylor is truly second to none. The professors are truly invested in their work and educating students and strive to make students succeed. All sporting events are free to Baylor students, as well as a myriad of other student programs and activities, an incredible value when compared to the cost of student tickets and activities at other universities. When you go to Baylor University, you get your bang for the buck in terms of education and student life.

    It's an expensive college. Can't lie about that. Regardless, though, the college seems to be well worth it. I would not recommend trying to go here without either substantial wealth or substantial scholarships, though- It wouldn't be worth it. With them? Absolutely.
