I appreciate your insightful post concerning LMU. I'm still in the pre-nursing phase, with only the sciences left to complete. At this stage, I'm trying to do what is fiscally responsible. If I recall correctly, undergraduate cost per credit hour was in the ball park of $730
Roane State will run you a fraction of that, at around $200 per credit hour. A look at the Princeton Review reveals that by tuition alone, LMU positions itself within the tier/ or class of schools
such as Clemson, or even Vanderbilt. That's an ambitious delusion by any other name to justify such costs, and made my choices a lot easier. Everyone has to do what they must, but there's no doubt there are other superior schools out there, at a much more reasonable cost.
