    As a freshman, I can't yet say how well the investment into TCU returns. However, from having conversations with others, I can tell that it is large.

    Definitely on the pricey side because it is a private school, however they offer several scholarship opportunities that can bring down the price significantly for students.

    If you are paying full price, it is not worth the tuition at all, in any way, shape, or form. It's nice, but it's not $55k nice. If you're getting a scholarship that brings it down to state college price, then it's much better.

    It's hard for me to say because I am on scholarship, but I would never discourage someone from coming here. We have a fantastic reputation and great employment rates. Although TCU is expensive, I'm not sure I know anyone paying the full price.

    Even though the school is very respective, I feel the cost is ludicrous. I would say the same thing for other colleges. Education shold not cost that much if you want to promote a progressive society.
