    Honestly, tuition is way too much money. I understand dorms because hello we live in NYC but it's still WAY too much money.

    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.

    The school is very expensive, but the professors all seem to be extremely well at what they do. With financial aid, I would say it is pretty good bang for the buck.
