    If this is where you really want to go, apply early to take full advantage of possible scholarships. DO NOT make your decision right after a tour of campus, as the representatives you will meet are all excellent salesmen.

    Regarding the price required to attend, don't let that frighten you off. They're very good with giving out financial aid to those who need it, making this school possible to attend even for those with less than stellar financial situations.
