I have been debating over this for quite a while, so I thought I would ask for some help. I have narrowed my choices down to Boston College and Madison, and I am deferred at the University of Minnesota, so I thought I'd throw that one in here too.
I guess I would like to go to Boston the most, but it will cost me about $15,000 a year more than the other schools. I don't really know where I want to live when I'm done with school, so I would like to keep my options open as much as possible. I'm from the midwest and would like the chance to live somewhere else, but I am having a lot of trouble with the idea of paying around $50,000 more to go to a city I'd rather be in. Educationally they are all great schools, and they are all somewhat regional when it comes to jobs...So is it really worth that much more money to go to Boston? From what I can tell, a degree from Boston will probably be a little more national than one from the other schools, but will my job prospects be that much better that they would make up for the extra cost?
