    Carolina is not cheap. But, college in general is not cheap, and I have heard many praises sung about how Carolina offers a good education for it's price. Which it does. But just know, the university can be a little stingy with their awards - you are required to fill out both a FAFSA and a university document, the CSS Profile. In my experience, the CSS Profile intially excluded me from a lot of need based grants that I, ahem, needed. There is an appeals process that they try and keep quiet about, but I encourage you to contact the financial aid office and ask if there is anything you can do to earn more money towards your tuition. I'm sad to say that Carolina - both it's students and faculty - can be pretentious, but shake off the haters. Your earned your spot there!
