    All state schools in general are a huge financial win in my opinion. For the location, quality of the education, and everything that'Â?s included in your tuition (125 printer pages a week, gym access and fitness classes, tutoring services, etc.), I couldn't be happier with the in-state tuition.

    West Chester is extremely cheap when compared to other colleges. That is banking on the fact that you are from in-state. It provides as good of an education as you can get for the price, and even better!
