GW vs. BU vs. CU

GW, bu or cu

Everyone says "go to the best school you get into," but it is my belief that this only applies to T-14 schools. 16-30 this philosophy becomes murky imo.

GW is automatically out. It's a tossup between BU/CU even though neither are attractive. CU is about 20-30k more expensive than I'd prefer (considering it will be around 120k debt at graduation). BU is around 30-40k more expensive than I'd prefer (considering it will be almost 160k debt at graduation).

Most students get in state tuition their 2nd and 3rd years at CU, if they didnt get it to start. The scholarship being 1st year full, 2nd and 3rd year 10K, would add up to around 45K-50K in tuition (assuming tuition will go up). I would imagine if one lives frugally they could attend CU with this scholarship and graduate with under 100K in loans, I could be wrong though.
