    Kalamazoo gives GREAT financial aid. I am currently going to attend it with an almost full ride scholarship. They gave a lot of money in financial aid and if you know that you are a student who has very unique extra curricular activities, are committed, and have good grades, then you might as well try and apply because with that you get a lot of financial aid.

    If I had to choose which college to go to again, I would always pick Kalamazoo College. It's a place you want to call home after only being there a few months.

    I'm sure there are things I don't understand about finances but I don't see why any school requires any fees to be paid.

    The tuition I expected from Kalamazoo was actually higher than what it actually was. Unlike other pricy liberal arts schools, K Zoo offers a nice cadre of liberal subjects, several opportunities for interships and externships, and a state-of-the-art study-abrod program, all for about $40000 a year. While this sum could stil be a burden, K Zoo has a good deal of merit- and need-based scholarships for all of those that wish to attend. I was able to get up to $62000 in scholarships for my four years at the college and I'm not exactly a 4.0 student with a 2400 on the SAT. You can obtain help, as long as you put an effort and time into it.

    This question is one of the most important ones on the review. The school itself is quite costly, with tuition and other fees constantly rising from year to year. With a lot of students not being able to afford the tuition, the financial aid office is quite generous with grants and other loans. Even though the college continues to raise its costs, the education it possesses is worth the price tag. When viewing the school's website, there is always a new article about a former student excelling after graduation, getting high-paid positions or making change in a community. With this being said, there is a statistic stating that Kalamazoo College is among the top in the category of students gaining Master's and PhD degrees after graduating. Overall, Kalamazoo is definitely worth the cost and work.
