I live in Austin. I have a fiancee and a house here. I got into UT. The tuition is in state, they've offered me a nice scholarship, so here I am LONG decided that UT is the school for me....BUT I'm second guessing myself. I also got into Columbia. I've not been offered any money, so the debt would be huge, I mean, it's NYC after all. I've read a lot of stuff on here about going to the best school you can get into, but TX is just so easy. If I go to Columbia, I have to sell the house, and do the long-distance thing with my honey - again - he just got back from completing his residency in NC. A new perspective may help. Thanks.
