    Muhlenberg does pay off! Many students have fellowships, or jobs, or graduate schools, lined up before they even graduate! A majority of the students are employed or are in graduate school within two years of graduation. If that doesn't say a lot about how much it pays off, then I don't know what will.

    My experience with Muhlenberg's financial aid is great. They don't offer a ton of merit aid, but what I got was pretty significant and it's not like I was valedictorian in high school. The Berg is fantastic with need-based aid. The sticker price is very shocking but my financial aid brought it down to a VERY affordable price, way cheaper than what other schools offered me. If you are a candidate for need-based aid, Muhlenberg will most definitely help you out.

    Most definitely. The quality and necessity of a liberal arts education in this day and age is unmatched. I am a Theatre (technical and acting concentrations) and Media Communications double major. And I have also taken Computer Science, Foreign Language, and Sustainability Studies course. Plus I work in the Information Technology department. All the professors are amazing. You will leave the school so skilled in so many different ways. And also extremely marketable for most any position.

    The school is over priced in my opinion. The quality of the teachers is worth it but for the price of facilities and food options its not worth it. They do put all of the money towards education which is most important but still over priced.
