Penn for all three markets you mentioned.

Some people (mostly from the North East) think Texas places as well as a T10 in Arizona because of where it is located but it really doesn't.

I don't have any opinion on the overall thread (how can anyone? OP hasn't said how much $$$, right?), but saying that Penn > UT on the location factor is ludicrous.


lol I agree; let's just slam states based on our own personal preference. I hate Pennsylvania (never been there) and would never live in the northeast (am living there). omg my comment is so helpful!

The people who are actually helpful in this thread have given the OP great information already imo. Lower COL, cheaper tuition, $$$ scholarship, OP's own personal preference to location (which doesn't seem to be a huge factor from what he's said in his posts) vs. more career mobility, etc. on Penn's side.

Also from the feeling I got from OP's posts...Penn sounds like the way to go for him.

y u mad? I'm just pointing out that if you're not comfortable with the very strong likelihood of ending up in Texas, it's not the right school to pick. Besides, he asked for opinions

OP has said how much $$$ is- 10k/yr for three years. Without residency, that would be about 12k less in tuition a year than Penn.

You're right, I shouldn't be mad at you for the dumb things you say, but alas I am human. That being said, please don't pretend

The latter is good advice, the former is just a dumb thing to say.

OP explicitly asked which would YOU pick. I hardly consider answering a question properly dumb.

There is clearly a difference between the specific question in the OP and what OP is actually seeking. Don't pretend people are unaware of that.

While that is technically true, I don't think my assumption that OP wanted advice for his decision is an unfair/inaccurate one (and not him actually caring about your own personal reasons, i.e. "I would choose Penn because my grandmother is old and lives in the city"). But hey, I could be wrong -- as I even mentioned in another thread, I have been on a rage fit on TLS the last few days and just been quite ornery. Sorry Jam if I came across as brusque, but your comment obviously rubbed me the wrong way, and I think we all know what you actually meant by it. Shoot, bigeast said essentially the same thing, but in a way that was a lot less abrasive.

pretty sure Texas gives you in-state in addition to the scholarship. you should call and check. besides tuition, you'll also have a lower COL being in Austin.

that said, do you even want to work in Texas? if not, then Penn all the way.

(not sure if your out-of-state reference to Penn is a subtle jab)
