    Like I said, if you are a good student, fill out the application, and you will be amzed at what they will do for you. There are many benefactors that care about students who work hard, and care about this college. All of the money goes for education here, and the buildings are all from fundraisers, and donations, The faculty is top notch, professional, and very personable.

    You will get the education you pay for but I would definitely make sure that this is the right place for you to be before you spend the type of money a private school requires.

    Keep in mind that FSC is a private institution so that does make it more expensive. That being said, you are going to get an excellent education if you decide to attend FSC. The professors work you hard and encourage you to do your best. If you listen to them and don't blow off your classes, I believe that you are using your money wisely. Although, it doesn't hurt to apply for lots and lots of scholarships so you aren't paying off student loans until you are 50.

    If you are a rigorous student who strives for continual success, then it is not worth it if you want to actually succeed in the future. Going to a cheaper, state school will be much better for you and your pocket.
