It retails for $300 if it's the standard version, and not the Student version.
Is it real? Pirated?

What OS are you using? Aperture won't do you any good unless you're on a Mac.

As to having Aperture and Lightroom in a "bundle", well, it really won't work well trying to use them together. If you have a Mac, well, you could install both and then pick which your prefer, but that's the only decent reason for installing both.

Whichever you choose, though, you will want to get a "pixel editor", it could be Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, or any of the numerous apps that allow you to manipulate images in ways that neither Lightroom or Aperture do. The academic discount for Photoshop is certainly nice, and if you have the funds, getting it plus Lightroom or Aperture will set you up with the best, but if funds are a consideration, you could look at Elements, which has a lot of Photoshop photo tools, but not as much as the Spendy version!

This is neither Aperture nor Lightroom, but is Nik Software plugin collection(Viveza, Color Efex Pro, etc) for Aperture and Lightroom. Won't do you a bit of good to buy it unless you have either Aperture or Lightroom first. ;)

The standard price right now on LR4 is $150.

Your teach/student site shows $78 - about the upgrade price.

As Tony said, you will need a pixel editor such as Photoshop if you want to do any in depth editing.

I'm sure you realize that "pro quality" is about content, not processing. Pig's ears and silk purses and all that. But if the content is there, Raw processing will make a good photo better.
Lightroom 4 will do everything you want for 99% of your images. I would recommend buying only LR4 now and in the future if you find LR inadequate for things you want to do, you can buy a companion editor or plugins. You will also be more experienced then and be able to gauge the wisest purchase.
