    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.

    Nobody ever pays full price because they always give out scholarships

    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).

    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.
