    Taylor is pricey. No doubt about that. But almost all of my professors have doctorates, and I've never found myself wondering, "How does this apply to my life?" MONEY ranked Taylor favorably in the 2016 Best Value College rankings. It probably would've been higher if they hadn't counted in the starting salary for Taylor graduates-- most Taylor grads aren't too focused on money, and a lot of them go on to be missionaries. My professional writing professor has published 62 books and more than 3,500 articles. If that doesn't show how qualified the professors here are, I don't know what will.

    it's very expensive. i am disappointed in the amount of financial aid i receive, because although fafsa told me that my expected contribution was $0 (meaning i should go to college for free), i am paying half of my tuition in loans. in high school, i felt like i did everything right to receive financial aid. however, i am still going to taylor because it is a campus like no other and you receive the kindness of christ, truly. i am a person in faith and i believe that eventually, all my debt will be paid for. sadly, several friends could not return because they did not want loans and can't afford taylor.

    Being a small private college Taylor University is going to be more expensive than most schools, but it is worth every cent. The quality of education you receive in my opinion is of the highest quality and the overall experience is like none other!

    I don't know that I can fairly answer this until I've been graduated for a few years. Right now, I don't think the $40,000 price tag is worth it.

    Taylor, as a private Christian school, can be pretty expensive, but so far I've found it to be totally worth the money. The academics are, in general, very good and I am confident that I will graduate with the experience necessary to find a job. The professors are very intelligent and helpful both in and out of class. Beyond academics, the community at Taylor is unlike anything I've experienced before, and it is wonderful.
