    Drexel seems very expensive, but that is because we have a quarter system. In a normal freshman year, you have 3 terms. That means you take up to 60 credits in the same time a semester university student can take 40. You don't pay tuition during co-op and will actually probably get paid during those 6 months.

    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.

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.
