    Kendall is a tiny bit cheaper than other schools! You just have to keep up on you financial aid. The financial aid office at Kendall is VERY VERY VERY helpful!

    Basically, college is expensive no matter where you attend. My bill is about $11,000 average per semester. this includes, tuition (14-15 credits), room and board, meal plan, and other various expenses like the health building, and the recreational center.

    I feel like all colleges today are pretty expensive. It's just the price we have to pay for our education.
