    The price tag is pretty expensive, but I definitely feel like the quality of life and learning I am receiving is worth it.

    it is expensive but then again, all private schools are expensive. they do try to offer you good financial aid and there are always plenty of opportunities to work on and off campus and get scholarships! the academic here, in my opinion, is not lacking considering how much we pay.

    This school is super expensive and while there are lots of opportunities, there are lots of things that should be included in the $60,000 that are not. For example, printing is still very expensive. Laundry was just made free this year, which is a plus. But overall, things here are outdated for the amount of revenue I'm sure this college gets from tuition every year.

    There is nowhere you can go to study outside of your dorm room alone because all public study areas are packed at all hours of the day. The school doesn't seem to care much about their students and the students seem to be interested in drinking more than anything else. The only students who try are those planning on going into grad school. There have also been an insane amount of student deaths and muggings at this school. Everything in super expensive, which I guess is okay for a lot of people because a majority of the student population come from rich families.
