    It looks expensive but it's super easy to get scholarship. it's small and is building reputation but it's a college on the rise.

    Not really worth the 50,000 dollars you spend for the dorms you live in but the education is pretty great.

    Etown is definitely on the more expensive side, but the school realizes this and most financial aid packages are generous and in the end most students don�t seem to pay too much more than students at less expensive schools. The financial aid counselors are also very helpful and willing to work with families, and I think the extra money is worth it to go to a school that is the right fit for you.

    School is expensive, we know. Especially a private school like Etown College. However, the experience I'm getting from attending a school such as this one, and the academic power is definitely worth the loans at the end of your four (or five, fellow Occupational Therapy majors!) years. There are so many opportunities that arise when attending such a small-- but definitely well-known in the area-- school like Elizabethtown.
