OSU out-of-state tuition is just over $41k. $12k scholarship makes it $29k per year. Wake tuition is $38k. $20k scholarship to Wake makes it $18k per year. So, the math wasn't perfect when I did it in my head, it's probably closer to $33k and some change. As the old saying goes, "horse shoes, hand grenades and law school tuition estimates..."
No, you are almost certain to get in-state tuition after 1st year
Ahhhhh.... I was not aware of that. My bad.
So, the cost difference will be about $3k more for OSU compared to Wake (unless OP is already an Ohio resident).
OP: My new advice is to visit the schools (if you haven't already) and go to whichever one you feel is a better fit. Also, I know you said you don't care about location, but I think that's what it comes down to. Do you want to live in Ohio for the rest of your life? or North Carolina? (They are VERY different places) I really think these are peer schools and will provide you with very similar career prospects so it just comes down to which you prefer/feel is a better fit.
