I did notice something in the news about some new loan forgiveness laws coming into effect, which is promising considering the mountain of loans most of us plan on taking out. I would think that any scholarship at either AZ school with in state tuition would be a better deal, especially considering how low COL can be in Tempe and Tucson (Tucson is especially cheap).
What, the loan forgiveness program that changes 25 years to 20? That shouldn't change anyone's calculation. Neither should anything short of a full ride at ASU/U of A. Even if you're only spending 30k total a year on tuition and COL, that's 100k after interest, something thats simply unjustifiable given current placement rates.
