    Drexel in expensive, but I have learned so much since I started attending there. I think it will help me with my career after graduation.

    Drexel is mostly known for the co-op experience, and most colleges don't offer up to 18 months of professional experience by graduation. The price may be steep and continuously rising, but the opportunities for research and professional development is unbeatable.

    Tuition is high. Drexel gave me a generous merit scholarship. A good portion of the money I make while working my COOPs(3) will go towards my tuition. I'll be moving off campus, which should offer some cost savings. My feeling is that if things continue to go the way that they're going now, Drexel will be worth every penny we paid.
