    Like any private college, you're going to have to empty your wallet (and more). Luckily, this school is incredible with its financial aid. The only reason why I am able to attend this school is because of the aid I received! Attending L&C may break the bank, but it is entirely worth it. You would be attending an incredible school that is commonly referred to as an ivy-league institution on the West Coast. Don't believe me? My biology professor used to teach at Harvard University... Our school provides the best teaching staff to make the best out of its students. What also helps is the incredibly alumni and donors to the college. There are many gateways waiting to be open because of the schools alumni.

    Though tuition is expensive, the education received it worth it. With small classroom environments, each student is given individual attention. Teachers are available during their office hours or by appointment to hep students. Financial Aid is also very good.

    While Lewis & Clark is known for being an expensive private school, it also have the resources and endowment to provide excellent scholarships for its accepted students. Last year, $25.7 million was provided to the entire student body in the way of grants and scholarships. L&C also has a job placement program for graduating seniors, which takes a lot of the stress out of job hunting.

    I come from a very low income family, and while L&C really shouldn't be in my price range at all, I was eligible for the Lewis & Clark Grant and that brought it into a much more affordable range. It's a private college so you can get a lot of institutional funding to make going to school here more realistic. There are a wide variety of incredible opportunities available at L&C that may not be accessible elsewhere, such as undergraduate research, which was a selling point for me.
