    This place is expensive. Try to get scholarships and financial aid. I think it is worth it though.

    They give out scholarships to everyone. Makes a very expensive school somewhat less expensive.

    Puget Sound gives generous scholarships for both academic and needs-based criteria. Students worried about finances can easily get answers they need from admissions, and Puget Sound tried to make it work. We have work-study programs for needs-based students and other on campus jobs for both needs-based and non-needs-based students to make some cash.

    I believe that although The University of Puget Sound is a little more costly than some other schools, I will graduate with a quality education and various connections that will serve me well later in life.

    Personally the school costs too much but that is the price you pay for having such small classes.
