    Cooper Union used to be tuition free which is pretty great for middle class families who aren't eligible for financial aid. However the school is no longer free at the moment. That being said every student receives a half tuition scholarship. So the tuition starts at 20,000 excluding financial aid which a lot of students receive. The school will be returning to a tuition free model as soon as possible. It's a great education for a relatively good price.

    Okay, so no more full scholarships sucks and they still don't really understand how to charge tuition. But still you're paying the equivalent of a state school for an education that is far superior.

    Free tuition. But the dorms are incredibly expensive.

    It's free, can't beat that!! Eventhough you have to pay the living expenses and supplies, etc. and New York can be expensive the experiences of New York are worth the money.

    I understand the financial aid benefits are second to non. In addition to one of the bests, if not the best engineering school in the nation. And for someone like me, with little hope in terms of finances, I can't look beyond Cooper Union
