  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

Bryn Mawr College has taught me the most important life lesson that many colleges fail to acknowledge. You don't come to receive, you come to take. I don't receive an education, I take my education ambitiously and passionately.
Jacqueline from Battle Creek, MI
An amazing place like no other.

Rigorous academics force mawrters to become serious about what they want to achieve academically.

Fantastic school. Perfect fit for me. Accepted with the Posse Scholarship (four yr full tuition) and I am eternally grateful to be spending my next four years. Love the honor code. Love the welcoming atmosphere. Love the traditions. Absolutely gorgeous school w/ beautiful people. Good food too!
Jwahir from Cambridge, MA
This college has the most beautiful campus I have ever seen. It provides everything I am looking for in a school environment and provides good academics. This college is my top choice if I receive enough financial aid/scholarship to attend, since the tuition is a bit pricey.
Bettina from La Crescenta, CA
It's a great community academically, as long as you're willing to work hard, you'll get plenty out of your time here.
