    Skidmore is very good with their financial aid, so no matter what economic bracket you are in you will not pay much more than you can afford. Skidmore also has two merit scholarships, one is for music and one is for math and science. Your tuition goes to continuing great academics, making Skidmore more sustainable, funding fun events, keeping dorms nice, creating awesome food at D-Hallm, and much much more.

    You get a great, personalized education, but I think some of the facilities, like the library, should be updated. A lot of the books are outdated.

    Skidmore is VERY expensive. In the past few years, it has even been named one of the 10 most expensive schools in the country. The school does offer great financial aid to students from very low incomes. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for those from Middle class and above. Because of this, a lot of the student do come from very wealthy families.
