    extremely expensive. there are cheaper liberal arts schools out there. but there is considerable financial aid. however, you will be able to earn money after graduation. the career center is extremely helpful, i hear. it helps you transform your resume into a real eye-catcher, search for (and find) jobs that you might have been expecting and some that you had never pictured yourself loving, and even stages mock interviews to help you better prepare. i'm pretty sure that wesleyan helps most students find jobs pertaining to their major or their interests.

    Wesleyan is a wonderful place that is close to major cities, though there is plenty to do on campus. It offers such a diverse group of people that I don't think I could find anywhere else. It is both rigorous and interesting. Everyone is completely excited about what ze is doing which leads to great conversation.

    Let's face it, this school is expensive. Studying for a year here will set you back about 55 grand, but at least in my case they were very generous with scholarships, and even though I still ended up paying $4000 this year I definitely feel like it's worth it.

    Ummmm it is on the more expensive end of the spectrum, but it is a good school to attend if you can afford it. It is 100% need met so you will be assisted financially to a great extent which is really nice. Overall the education you receive here is by far superior to other universities.
