I was recently accepted to both DePaul and Loyola. DePaul was my first acceptance, and is offering a $4000 a year for four years (part-time) if I keep a 2.3 gpa. Loyola is only offering student loans, and is offering no scholarship money. My question is, given that I have a scholarship offer from DePaul (that I am not likely to lose considering the GPA requirement), should I go there over Loyola? Would my job prospects be better graduating from Loyola? Or would the job prospects be about the same? I have heard that between the two schools, they are neck and neck in the rankings, so it really wouldn't matter which school I went to. However, I had my heart set on Loyola, but I am now seriously considering DePaul because of the scholarship money. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
