    Sewanee is hideously expensive, but there are a fair number of scholarships out there. If the price, with or without scholarships, is in budget, the location is worth it, but you may still have to put in some effort to really feel like you're getting your money's worth.

    The school and all the amenities costs about $50,000 a year. Is it worth it? In my opinion yes because the various shortcomings of Sewanee is overshadowed by everything I have said above about Sewanee.

    What a waste. This school wants to charge you what the Ivy leagues want to charge but without the benefits or reputation.

    YES, Sewanee is worth every penny and for every class that comes in there's a price freeze so never worry about your tuition raising while your there.
