    I'm not going to lie, it is A LOT of money and I don't really suggest going here unless you are looking to study premed, business, or engineering. I say this because those programs at the U are some of the best in the country and the business school is REALLY good at getting students employed right after graduation. If you want to be an elementary school or middle school teacher I suggest saving your money and going to a smaller and cheaper university.

    It's a very prestigious school with many amenities and opportunities. I would say the more expensive tuition is worth it. Would I like it to be a little less? Of course but that's why I'm applying for scholarships.

    Especially if you're paying in-state, there is no other place you can get this kind of an education for this cheap. And that isn't opinion. I'm studying at Carlson which has a 10% direct admit (from high school) acceptance rate and I'm paying less than 10,000 for tuition alone (it's around 9 with all the fees)

    If you have reciprocity, it is absolutely worth going here. I can't really speak for out of state tuition but there are many so I believe it is.

    Students pay less due to it being a public university, but UMN's academic rigor and reputation insures students' education is among the best in the nation. I am applying for graduate schools now, and I feel confident that with a UMN on my transcript, prospective advisers know I am well-trained and educated.
