  • I am a past student here

    When I was applying for Salem, there was no full-ride scholarship. Now there is, so you should totally go for that. I did get what was called a full scholarship which just paid tuition. However, if you receive such a scholarship, you'll be required to live on campus even if you live five minutes away. This came out for me to be 13k a year and with such a scholarship, I didn't get any financial aid. Unless you're filthy rich, the about 35k a year is going to be a pretty steep price. After a year and a half out of school, I've applied to over 200 jobs and haven't been able to get one. I've tried to call and email the woman in charge of the "career center" and have never gotten a response. After graduating (and even during your senior year), Salem will be relentless in asking you for your money.
