Live in New England, would like to work on the East Coast. Or LA might be fun, who knows...
Temple with $12K once or Arizona with $14K a year

Have you looked into Arizona's in-state tuition policy? And Temple's too (isn't it a public university)? The specifics of that policy could be really important. Some schools allow you to pay in-state tuition after one year, while others make you pay out of state all three years. Arizona could be more than just 28 thousand dollars less: it could be more like 50-60 thousand dollars less (I haven't looked at their tuition numbers). It seems that you are open to living in different parts of the country. Look into the policies and talk to current students about them.

Good point, research time. Temple is pretty cheap anyway so it only amounts to a difference of $14K over 3 years. But I wouldn't mind being warm for a while.

Another way of looking at it is that Arizona is basically giving you in state tuition (14K/yr) so the residency thing is irrelevant. If you do get residency, that's a bonus. Otherwise, you're paying the same amount as an instate person would.

Yeah, but the money is so close it's more about reputation at this point...

Temple is on the East Coast, so I would go to Temple.
