    Moore is an expensive school, however, I think it is worth the price. The professors are all incredibly well versed in their respective fields. Those that teach studio classes are very talented and are practicing artists.

    Moore is a lot of money, but it is one of the more affordable art schools out there. Moore provides 85% of students with scholarships, so they really do try to help out with the tuition. There is also the iPad initiative, which provides every new freshman student with an iPad. Moore focuses highly on academics and it is evident that the money is put mostly into academics.

    Moore is expensive that is true. But I believe you must strive for what you want, and that is often the best education. Financial aid helps a lot, regarding the expenses, but Moore's positive message of women empowerment, really helps make the decision on what art college is the best. By the time I leave Moore, I know that I will be an even better artist, and my confidence for my own artwork will skyrocket. Moore has very expensive amounts for each specific thing, but it is possible to go, and scholarships and financial aid definitely help.

    I'm not sure I can go because of the price, but I'm trying as hard as I can to find scholarships.

    It is understandable that because Moore is a private school the rates are high, but sometimes it does not seem like your money is going to the right places. It would be nice to know exactly where and to what all the tuition money is going towards.
