    For all the money Drexel's tuition is, it's definitely worth it because the buildings are always kept so nice, the professors really know what they're talking about, and the quality of education is something you won't find anywhere else.

    Since I'm still in school, I can't particularly vouch for the bang part yet, but my prospects of landing a great, well-paying job are looking extremely good. There's no doubt about that part if you come to Drexel. No one can deny the high cost of attending this school though. It is a considerably expensive endeavor. This will be repetitive but: try your very best to get as many scholarships as possible. If anything at all, the exceedingly high costs of attendance may do for you what it did for me: forced me to learn how to handle my finances much better than the average college student.

    Drexel can be extremely expensive for some while others pay less. I find that what you're paying for you can get back in full if you really really take advantage of everything. The co-op program is the biggest draw which will really help set up a student for after college when they have some experience on their resume while other students may be behind.
