    Georgia State has a relatively low cost school with plenty of scholarships available. Just take care of your financials via Paws and Panther Pay asap!

    It is very expensive for not a whole lot. I would recommend not being on the meal plan and finding somewhere cheaper to live than the dorms.

    State is one of the most cost effective and financially reasonable schools that I have come across, definitely in the state and in general in the United States. The school is invaluable not only in terms of the crazy unlimited resources the school has to offer but to have the advantage of so many businesses and corporations in the city that allow for job opportunities and internship opportunities, opportunities that can help you get where you want to be in life. I also say GSU is incredibly worth the money because it legit is if you just strictly compare it by the numbers, for example, Morehouse College, one of my main choices costs about $40,000 per year, but at State it will cost about $40,000 for my entire 4 years here. That is â??Ludacrisâ?? (he graduated from Georgia State).

    GSU is underrated, there is a large and very diverse student body. In addition to diversity, GSU quietly has excellent research opportunities, internships, and programs throughout the state of Georgia. GSU also has excellent study abroad programs. GSU has tons of opportunities and programs for their students, however, these programs may not be widely advertised.
