I could've gone to just about any school in the country out of high school, I went to Oregon State University because it was in my home state, and was free due to scholarships. They have a very good program in my major, and I don't regret my decision at all, because I have no debt, and my parents had saved money for college that they will now be willing to give me for law school, which is sweet.
I knew quite a few people who paid a lot of money that they didn't really have to go get relatively useless degrees at high-priced schools, and though they may enjoy their experience, I think that's a waste of money. Also, I never once thought that I would be done with college after earning a BS, so I figured, why pay for 7-8 years of school instead of just 3-4.
