    Expensive, but do not let the sticker price turn you away! If you're good enough in school to get into the college, likely your grades are good enough to get you a really big academic scholarship, plus there are merit scholarships, you get lots of grant money, and there is student employment and loans as well. When it comes down to it you usually only end up paying what yopu would for a state school.

    Going here is expensive, but Gustavus offers great financial aid and the quality education that you can receive is definitely worth it, I feel.

    Gustavus is a VERY expensive school, but don't let it scare you, they give out a lot of financial aid. I feel that the alumni connections and quality education that I will receive at Gustavus will be worth my money.

    I believe that the tuition is extremely high but we are in a recession and financial management is not the best currently. But the education and life here is really great.

    Gustavus is expensive and will probably be more expensive your senior year than your freshman year. But, you get so many things provided on campus. Food, laundry, your books, everything can be found on campus. Still is Pricey, so take a look at scholarships and grants, after you see the price tag.
