HYS or CCN with aid, based on wanting to work abroad.

Postby brownpride » Thu Jun 09, 2011 4:47 pm

I know the question of HYS at sticker vs. lower T14 with money has been posed endlessly, but I'm wondering what to do based on the particular field that I want to work in. My aim is to work in international human rights law - meaning public sector work likely in an NGO or international organization - and preferably to work in a variety of countries abroad. I know that across the country firms and governments will recognize T14 schools, but I've found that many abroad don't even know what Columbia, NYU, etc. are. For that reason, I feel that HY would be best due to their recognition worldwide (as well as due to the immensity of opportunities they open up).

However, I received a full ride for undergrad, and am extremely debt averse. Still, HY have been my goal since I began undergrad and I feel that I'd be willing to incur the loans that they'd necessitate. Many TLS users obviously feel otherwise, and I'm confused now. I'm not planning to pursue work in the private sector, so repaying loans would be really difficult as well.

What are some opinions or relevant considerations?

It's hypothetical. Calm down.
