If you were 100% set on PI, I might say Chicago, because IBR and LRAP will make that debt not matter, but you seems a bit ambivalent about it.
Is it really that simple? Would I be foolish to take Penn at $78k scholly and still pursue IBR and LRAP when I could've done the same at Chicago?
IBR makes debt manageable but this "LOLZ don't worry about debt because you have IBR" ignores the fact that your bank account still reads -$200,000. There's something very uncomfortable with owning that much debt for a decade.
