    Many courses transfer seamlessly to larger, more ecpensive schools such as UCONN. At a significantly lower cost, this displays the value of instruction given at Eastern.

    For in-state students is a good school to go to in order to save money. The education is worth the save. However, out-of-state students should not attend because the extra tuition would be better off spent at a private institute.

    I think that Eastern is great for its relatively low price. Although compared to other universities, the quality of education isn't as good, Eastern is still a quality school. For what students are paying, they most definitely get their money back. I ended up going for free my first year because I received a large Pell Grant and other scholarships. My sophomore year, tuition went up and aid went down, but I still did not have to take out many student loans.
