Room and Board
The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

New Mexico Tech is wildly underrated by prospective students.It's so small that opportunities are abundant. Classes are excellent.

Tech is a great place for those who want a good education. You have to be a special kind of person to go here though. You have to be dedicated and enjoy small towns.
New Mexico Tech is a very good School, and has one of the most difficult curriculum I've seen. However, the reputation of the school with companies across the globe has allowed graduates from this school to easily acquire high paying jobs. So, though the school may be very tough, it is worth it in the end.
