    $22K is a lot, but you get lots of free software, fun, and a great education for the money. You also have a significantly higher chance of landing a job with a great well-paying company!

    So far, out of state tuition stinks. After a year of living on campus, I still don't qualify to apply for in state tuition......Next year though. I have been told that they have a very good placement rate after graduation. I am not there yet but that is at least comforting.
