    Personally I think going to Mason is worth the money because it is an accredited university with a reputation that is only moving forward. With this said, it is up to you to make it worth your money. As a student you have to make yourself go to class and keep your grades up. Certain classes here do take attendance, but as it is at all colleges, it is up to you to attend.

    Mason is expensive, but Northern Virginia is a very expensive area to live in, generally speaking. Considering how great the value of the education you get here is, it's well worth the tuition costs.

    I chose Mason because it offers the most bang for your buck in the area. Washington D.C. is close by and offers good internships for every major.
