    The recent tuition price has been dropped, but it is still at least $25,000 to come. The classes are great, excellent teachers, but is it still a bit expensive if you dont have outside scholarships.

    As expensive as the tuition is, I don't think I would learn as much as I already have at any other school. The field experience is phenomenal! Students are able to learn in a classroom with peers but are also able to experience the material firsthand in the real world.

    It is a bit costly. If you choose to take advantage of all it's resources than you definitely get your money's worth but if you don't it will seem like your spending a lot for a little.

    Some of the fees seem unnecessary, especially when you don't know where they are going to. But overall, Lesley is pretty great compared to other schools.

    while i love it here, it can be a little costy, and people tend to cap they're aid and might still need a little more.
