    There are so many scholarship opportunities and the education is great for the price. I learned more here in one semester than I did at my expensive private university I transferred from.

    It's a very expensive private school, but the experience, I think, is worth it. The faculty is amazing, and working on campus is easy to do. The only reason I didn't score it higher is because the food, compared to the price we pay, is atrocious, and because some faculty/departments are much lower quality than others.
