    Even though the price is pretty up there, I do think that Elon is worth it because there are so many ways that Elon tries to get students ready for life after graduation. Many students leave with a job lined up or they have one within six months of graduation. In addition, all of the club options and hands on experiences really gives students some great leadership skills that they can take into the real world.

    Elon is an expensive school, but the connections you make and the quality of the help and the education are worth the money.

    Elon has scholarships from endowments which you can apply for which can be for both merit or need-based which offset the cost some.

    Much cheaper than other schools of its status but at the same time, Elon doesn't offer a break to their students when it comes to their meal plan and other fees.
