    Elizabethtown is very, very expensive. Is it worth it? Most students would say yes, absolutely. However, the cost can definitely be a big factor. If you have academic merit and financial need, the school does offer some great scholarships and aid.

    Tuition is on the pricier side, but as long as you apply yourself, the possibilities for getting a good job with a good salary are there.

    There are programs offered at Elizabethtown that are unique to the area. For example, the music therapy program is known internationally as one of the best in its field. Also, despite being a four-year undergraduate college, it offers a five-year program for Occupational Therapy in which students earn a Bachelors and Masters degree in OT.

    It is expensive, but they do give out a lot of scholarships, many of them cover half of the tuition or more. Scholarships are also easier to keep than at most colleges as well, I believe the minimum GPA to maintain after you recieve an academic scholarship is 2.0. (Most colleges require either 2.75 or 3.0, which is really diffcult to do- some semesters are much harder than others. It also means that the freshman lag in grades before students adjust is not as harsh.) There are also a lot of included services many students are not aware of. If you take advantage of there opportunities, you really are getting a good value for your education and personal care needs (they offer many counseling and medical services free).
