    I got an awesome financial aid package, and so has everyone with whom I have talked. I got a massive academic scholarship, work study, and other generous grants because of my income. Do NOT feel like DU is out of your price range.

    It's expensive, but there are many extracurricular activities. Every class is taught be a professor (not a TA), so you can be assured most of the instructors have been teaching for several years and have honed there delivery skills. The upper division classes (and some lower division classes) are fairly small, so the professor will actually get to know you (good for letters of recommendation for grad school or employment).

    The University offers many extra actives and free things that I don't think many other institutions offer, partially because it is private and a bit more expensive than other public institutions. The plus side is it really makes you feel like you're getting what you paid for. Again, depends on how much you take advantage of.
