    I would say that for a University that doesn't offer a lot of financial aid and is raising its tuition because of the budget deficit they have by building dorms, you don't really get what you should get by a University that charges you around $15,000 and it is going to increase even more.

    As the only public university in Boston, it is by far the cheapest option around. They also have a lot of merit and need-based scholarship opportunities available. That being said, there are a lot of budget cuts happening that are lowering the quality of the overall experience-- some examples are classes being cancelled, faculty being laid off, and problems with transit to campus (both shuttle service and parking).
