    Though tuition is a bit high, it is well worth it! The Scranton experience is unlike any other. Courses are designed to push you to your potential and more than prepare you for graduate or professional school. The comfortable environment also adds value, with everyone involved on campus seeking to make the area both safe and homey.

    I don't think the cost is worth it, it seems like smaller state schools fit criteria as well.

    The University has a high acceptance rate into medical schools, dental schools, and graduate programs. I believe that it is worth the money.

    Working on my MSED is very important to me. My desire for truth, ethics, and an understanding that we are all equal and global is bundled up in a package of professors and administrators who share this vision.

It's vital that I walk with a class and recieve my diploma, in front of my two daughters in order to model what life-long learning is about. It's not just about making more money but learning more about myself and the world. This is not-for-profit school, so obviously, it's less expensive, but it holds a name, character, and rigor of any international university and goes the extra mile that many other schools demand financially, first.
