    SMC is worth every penny. The campus is beautiful, the professors are well educated, and the belles are future bridesmaids.

    Saint Mary's is expensive! Just realizing the tuition costs of this school can be over-whelming, but don't let that scare you from attending here. Financial aid does an incredible job supporting students of low income. There are plenty of people who do pay the entire amount; however not one of them suggests, the cost of this school for what is is is not worth it. You will succeed, you will learn and you will be challenged.

    In my experience, Saint Mary's is very generous with its financial aid. I applied to seven colleges before applying to Saint Mary's and was extremely disappointed when I only got accepted to Indiana University, which is a good school but has way too many people for my taste. I thought IU was giving me a great deal, because I would only have had to pay $3,000 for my tuition, but then I applied to Saint Mary's, which has a student body size I was more comfortable with, and found out I would only have to pay half of what I would have had to pay at IU and was ecstatic.
