    This school is shockingly expensive, but that's because it's a private school and Loyola has to pay for many things including maintenance, professors and other expenses. However, Loyola does give a lot back to the community and provide quite a lot of financial aid to students to make it more affordable. Also, Loyola is considered a Baby Ivy school, so you're really paying for a genuine education.

    I have complete faith that I have chosen the correct school for me. The Professors are extremely helpful and have become an invaluable resources for recommendation letters and advice. I know I have advanced in a positive way both as a person and in my academics. Loyola is a wonderful place to go to school. I appreciate all it has done for me.

    I do not know how any school can justify a 40,000+ bill, but so far I believe that Loyola is preparing me for my future. I suggest using all the services/events at Loyola because you are paying for it after all.

    The beginning of my freshman year here I was like I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M PAYING THIS MUCH FOR GOING TO SCHOOL! but once you spend a semester at Loyola you start to realize that it is definitely a good investment. The campus is beautiful, the people are great and honestly the professors are what won me over, they are not what I expected. Every professor I've had at Loyola has been great, they honestly cared about my work in the class and even my life outside of class, and what I liked most was how passionate they were about what they were teaching.
