    DePaul's tuition price is more pricey than most, but you do get an unlimited U-pass, access to the gym, many resources, and the staff at DePaul are very friendly. Plus, you get a campus in Lincoln Park and the Loop campus. The price is worth it.

    the tuition payed to attend depaul is definitely worth it. they make you feel as though you belong there and a majority of the events that the school holds are free admission for students. students don't just come here to learn, they come to enjoy themselves.

    Tuition is overpriced, but many students receive rather large scholarship packages.

    Education not so much, dorms are nice (but too expensive), food options are okay, not much to do around campus. THE SCHOOL SPIRIT HERE IS ABSOLUTELY TOTALLY WEAK! There are a lot of oportunities here if you can get past the bad social atmosphere and mediocre academics. Professors are definitely nice if you pick them right.
