    If you can make it through your classes and get to graduation, it's absolutely worth it. You'll pay the same you would anywhere else, but your degree frankly means more. Mines is held in high regard for a reason, and it pays off if you earn it.

    Tuition is really expensive for out of staters, so gather any scholarships you can if that's you. It's more reasonable for in state because it is a public school. If you are from Colorado and can get into Mines, it is a fantastic value. The truth is, either way your return on investment will be what you make of it. If you come out with campus involvement, a pretty good GPA, and no felonies, employers will LOVE you. A Mines degree is very respectable to future employers. You can land a great job and a great starting salary in any major if you work hard.
