    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.
