    Mercyhurst is pretty pricey but they do give out a lot of aid. It is a decent school that gives opportunities that make it worth the cost. Experience is far more valuable than a traditional approach of education.

    It is a private liberal arts school, but the caliber of the teachers is exceptional and the ability to develop relationships with accessible professors is invaluable.
