Of course those could change but if you're planning on going into a high paying field (meaning the $150k will be more managable) than you should definitely go with GW. How much of an impact that debt will have on you is important to consider (seeing as we all are going to be in the same boat). Howard will provide certain minority opportunities GW won't, but thinking that way seems to be boxing yourself in a little. As a general rule, unless you are completely dedicated to one specific area, I think it's better to go to the school that will provide the most opportunities in the most locations. If you've already gone to Howard, then you still have that undergrad network connection, and you won't have problems opening doors with a GW degree. In general terms, the DC pecking order is going to put GW second, and Howard 5th. If you're staying in DC (or going national) GW's going to carry a lot more weight.And numbers/prestige whores drive me nuts, so I hope this doesn't make me sound too much like that!
