    Although Earlham is expensive, for the quality and personalized education you get here, it's hard to beat.

    Earlham is EXTREMELY expensive and scholarships are the only reason that I, personally, was able to come here. It is an amazing and wonderful school but i hesitate to say that it's worth the same amount as Harvard.

    Earlham is really expensive but it's totally worth it. They offer a lot of financial aid, most of my friends here essentially came because it offered the best financial aid package. The things the school does for us and the academics prove why the school costs so much. You get what you pay for here, and that's an amazing education and community life.

    Earlham gives out tons of scholarship money. The education you'll get is great, but unfortunately resources are often outdated and crappy (aside from the brand-new Wellness Center) and opportunities are scant.
