    If you don't have many scholarships, paying for school is going to be a little tricky. You'll most likely have to take out loans. But I honestly think it's worth it because this school is awesome.

    The best place on campus to get your bang for your buck is at the Student Life Cinema. The cinema is an actual professional level movie theater which every month screens new blockbuster movies. Most importantly the theatre is free to all students and the concessions are very reasonable with $1 popcorn.

    This school is worth every penny. I do wish that more money was offered from financial aid, but know that you probably won't be getting a lot of grants from the school. They will try to place you with loans if you do not have your own money. That being said, it would be best to find your own scholarships and apply that way. But don't let the cost of school or working with certain administrative offices detour you. The school itself and the people are great. Sometimes calling administration offices can take a while with FSU.

    All colleges are going to overcharge you, but for what I'm getting at FSU, I do not have many real complaints about the cost.
