How should tuition costs play into my college choice?
Director of Admissions
Although the cost of attending your school is important, cheaper is not always the best way to go. Make sure you are making an apples-to-apples comparison with financial aid by looking at the total cost of attending a school. A $5,000 financial aid package to a $20,000 school is a much better offer than a $7,000 grant to a $40,000 school.
