    The school should be cheaper, given that nothing is free at Penn. In other words, rarely does one find a commodity that is included in tuition.

    So being a private school tuition is pretty high BUT financial aid is readily available and from my own experience they made it possible for me to take out minimal loans as well as the many opportunities for scholarships, the office does their best to make sure that you don't need to worry much if you ask. In the end I do feel like it is worth every penny
