    It's a very expensive school, but St. John's works hard to make sure everything is at it's best for their students. The halls are wonderful, and we get access to many different things, such as an on-campus gym, free personal laptops, an open rec gymnasium, and so much more.

    Its a well known school, they have great academics, sports, professors, their location is super awesome and their campus itself is nice, clean and enjoyable to live in. the school is expensive yes. BUT, they give you so much financial help its crazy! so at the end of the day their cost isn't the cheapest but they sure do offer you help to make you want to be there haha

    In terms of getting your money's worth honestly speaking I feel like you could take 10,000 of that 45,000 tuition while it is a great school and well respected one at that it isn't different from school like Hunter University and others. I believe based of reputation that is why they are given the leeway to charge 45,000 for tuition. Labs, different workshops and events doesn't give you that sense of world class service, teaching or equipment needed for you to be in the top 10% it just gives you the feeling off you are above average but not the best.
