    BC is pretty expensive at almost $60000 a year, and financial aid isn't always generous. However, you are getting a high quality education that you might not get at a cheaper school. Although it is pretty painful taking out those student loans, you know you will get your money's worth in an education that will lead you to accomplish great things. With a BC education under your belt, you'll be able to find work/get into grad school, which will ultimately lead to paying off those hefty loans anyway. So, overall, it is worth the money.

    Very expensive school, many people get the shaft on financial aid. Still, a very good school academically.
