The review goes on to say, "A 12:1 student to faculty ratio makes meaningful relationships with faculty members inevitable, and academic success all but guaranteed. Plus, York makes their already competitive tuition even more accessible with a wide range of academic, need-based, and performance scholarships that range from the $1,500 Blue and White Award for above-average students to a substantial “Sibling Scholarship” for families with a legacy of commitment to their alma mater."
