    This school is horrendously expensive and unless you're a minority, the financial aid isn't as stellar as it needs to be to pay for college. The school focuses heavily on diversity and inclusion so anyone who isn't white should receive lots of funding.

    This school may be a Private Institution, but it is purely amazing. Located at the heart of Republic City and with the wonderful atmosphere around it it is very hard not to instantly love this place. You will be able to enjoy all four seasons of the year and find the school does very well to help you celebrate it. The academics are of sole importance because that's what everyone goes to college for, right? Well, Seattle University has a strong connection to all of its Alumnis and upon graduation the school will do its absolute best to help you secure a job and be well on your way.

    not going to lie, it is really expensive and a bit overpriced, but it does match the price you pay with the level of education you want...just barely.
