    The U is exceptional in that it's tuition is usually lower than most of the other Big 10 Schools! You get access to amazing professors, a library that is second to none and the opportunity to really get the feel of big college.

    The University of Minnesota is a wonderfully cost effective university. At around 19,000 out of state and 13,000 in state it is one of the cheapest colleges for the prestige of the school, and one of the cheapest big ten university.. Minnesota is a highly ranked engineering, business, and medical, research school that provides lots of opportunities to get into you're field as underclassman. Minnesota is known both in the area and nationally for its education and companies (local and national) are very interested in Minnesota students. 3M, GE and Honeywell being Minneapolis based companies that recruit heavily from the U. With all these opportunities for a great education, work, and experience for a low price, Minnesota is a very cost effective choice.
