CCOM is just too expensive to justify over a cheaper option usually. If you live together, you can check to see what your cost of living is right now compared to CCOM’s estimate on their COA chart. But 320k in tuition alone is a lot
Additionally, Walmart has delivery options usually and there is one in Kirksville. So that could alleviate the concerns about groceries (you can get most staples at least from there). On-campus dining is nice for CCOM, but I feel their pricing is probably high and that I personally wouldn’t feel I could take advantage of it if I were in your shoes.
