    It is expensive, but it's worth it. There is a great financial aid program, so don't worry about the cost too much. Bowdoin likes to make sure its students are happy, and is nationally ranked for doing so (in the top 5). You are treated well and academically challenged.

    Bowdoin gives great financial aid using the same no-loans strategy as the Ivy's which makes it a great choice.
