    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)

    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.
