    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.
