    Tuition is rising, but I still think Behrend is a good school for the cost. If you get in good with professors, they're willing to bend over backwards to give you contacts for paid internships, jobs, etc. A lot of professors will even attempt to set you up with paid internships under them.

    Overall, it is a little costly and you don't receive much financial aid. If they lowered the price by $2,000-$5,000 I feel it would be more realistic. The school does offer a lot for students, and the faculty is very interactive, but $20,000/year is still a large amount for out-of-state students.
