    The financial aid I have been rewarded is definitely sufficient enough for me to be seriously considering attending Biola. I do wish they could have given me a bit more so I would not be worrying about taking loans.

    It's incredibly pricey here and sometimes I wonder where my tuition is going but I am recieving an education in an environment that I would not trade for the world.

    Biola is very expensive but worth it if you want a respectable degree and value learning about the Bible from passionate biblical scholars.

    Although an expensive private school, you'll definitely learn and grow in a great setting with beautiful people and it will be worth it all.
