    While I think that this school should provide a lot more student aid, and that it's way to expensive, I do love this school. I feel as though I get a little bang for my buck, but not a lot. I would like to see a couple thousand knocked off the price. There are plenty of unnecessary costs that students are charged for.

    If you are In-State and interested in Business or Music, IU cannot be beat. It is also relatively cheap for Out-of-State. It all depends on your career interests and what you want out of the school.

    As an in-state school it is definitely the best bang for your buck. The music school is better than Juilliard and the Kelly school of business is one of the best in the nation. Besides the cost of books and tuition there isn't much you'll have to pay for once you are at Indiana University.

    I'd give it a 5, but IU is absolutely notorious for draining you of every bit of money you have. Don't believe me? Go here, and see what I mean.

    Pizza X has the best food deals and stay checked in on Eat Cheap Week to try what Bloom has to offer for little money. If you are interested in spending little and staying small, split something with a friend. Many clubs and organizations on campus provide free food, drinks, and deserts for showing up to discussions, resource help functions, and meetings. Even if you are only interested in making a organization appearance for the food, do it! More than likely the food is being provided so that you will come and you might see an interest develop. The Urban Outtfitters on Kirkwood has very very good sells so check that out. College Mall isn't very grand, but they have good deals as well.
