    You will get your money worth at this university. If you are one of those students who life long dream is to attend Univeristy of South Carolina. The true house of the Gamecocks, then USCL is the way to go. You get the same education for a cheaper price.

    The price is great and very affordable! Even if you're an out-of-state student, USC-L will probably still be better on your pockets than any other school around. If you have a job then you have a chance to build up your money, especially for when you transfer, so you won't be as broke as many college students are.
