    TCU is quite expensive, but if you are a strong student, you will certainly receive scholarship that makes the price extremely competitive for other universities (even cheaper than some public schools). That being said, the price is most certainly worth all the opportunities that the school offers students - you just have to make sure you take advantage of them.

    Lots of retailers and dining options in Fort Worth offer something called Purple Fridays where they provide discounts or free things on Fridays before football game days. Also, you can purchase something called Frog Bucks which is money that you can use at local restaurants and you just have to show them your student ID.

    Despite my glowing review for TCU, I feel it's a bit overpriced. There's only a $10,000 difference between TCU's annual expenses and Harvard's. If you can, choose Harvard.

    TCU is expensive. I am blessed that my parents help with college plus I apply for scholarships that help.
