    MSU is very well priced for the different levels of education offered here. The school doesn't hold back in scholarship offers if you match the requirements, either. The dorms, the facilities, and the quality of education are all very worthy of the tuition cost.

    Stuff is pretty expensive here. So when you buy books, wait til you start the class to see if you even need that book. If you do need that book try to buy it used or rent it. I ended up getting out pretty cheap and only spent $400 on books. The online forms are the most expensive and you have to have those new.
