    Exceptional value. It is a public school, but the cost is lower than most equivalent universities. Classes are serious and you will get out of it what you put in, but if you slack off, then say goodbye.

    It is not easy being a college student and unfortunately a broke one. I tend not to go out a lot on the weekends and work a school campus job which helps me save more money. The campus itself very beneficial when it comes to bank for my bucks since we have so much free food due to various activities and my college investment is worthwhile due to getting a favorable learning experience.

    It's $35.000 for out of state students and it is really not worth it. At the beginning of the semester I was worried I was going to get a D or F in biology even though I was studying all the time. I discussed with my professor and she told me to retake the class for an extra $3,000. This really iiritated me because I study all the time, but the tests are weighted 75% and the clickers and quizzes are the other 25% and they're bother graded grades. Look into other options if money is an issue and you can't really get scholoarships or grants.

    WVU offers so many opportunities to their students, as well as making each student a priority despite the large class sizes.
