Making a long story short: OU awarded me a merit scholarship which cuts down about half of the out-of-state fees (I live in Dallas) and I have also been accepted to Tech at in state fees (incredibly cheap). I have no intention of practicing in Oklahoma, but would personally prefer OU over Tech. Its about a 15k difference in the end and from what I have heard, the job opportunities are about equal for grads of both schools in the DFW/North Texas area (where I'd like to end up). Is it worth it to attend a school that is Tier 2 over Tier 3 for 15k (plus intrest)?
I had intially decided on OU, but based my decision on some bad numbers as I thought the initial award would cover all out of state fees. Am I being to anal over the extra 15k? (I do have about 20k in undergrad debt). And yes, I am borrowing every penny...lol.
Any insight or response is truly appreciated. Thanks!
