You are giddy with excitement at going to Emory. The feeling is a thrill, to have been accepted at such a prestigious school! And yet, have you sat down to do the math? If you are taking loans out, have you truly realized how long it will take to pay those loans off? Take it from someone who has been in your place. Emory is expensive, but is it worth it? Just please think about it. If this school truly cared about "social responsibility" it would make getting a nursing education less of a burden. But if you have been sold on the incredible sales pitch, it may already be too late ...

True. It is a very expensive school. And almost all schooling these days is way overpriced. A problem in this country in and of itself. However, it is not the nursing school who sets the tuition, but the University as a whole. The blame should not be pointed at the SON in any way. The SON also is very aware of this and is something they take into consideration with every decision of their program.
To those reading this, be aware that there are plenty of funding sources to help you through the two years in addition to opportunities such as HRSA post-graduation. It may be tougher for some, but is very doable. This is coming from a current student.
Emory SON truly does follow their value of social responsibility and it is one of the few schools who does. It is evident in their work throughout the state of Georgia and other countries of this world.
Just adding to the other side of the story. However, in the end it is each individuals choice.
