    This school is super expensive but its worth the small class sizes, guaranteed classes and graduation time. It is also worth the one on one help that is offered on a day to day bases.

    I think the real bang for the buck is how much your professors take interest in your life and academics, helping you succeed both in class and in life. They always care and take time to meet and help students out.

    Northwestern has a really good financial aid program, so even though tuition may seem really expensive in reality hardly anyone actually pays that much. I have two thirds of my school paid for with scholarships from the school!
