Duke vs UCLA

Duke with merit of $105,000 or UCLA with $120,000. National flexibility desired since not partial to a specific market.

Really comes down to Southern California versus the East Coast, in my opinion.

Tough one - do you prefer East or West?

Then I'd definitely take Duke. A much better school for only around $15k more? Easy choice, imo.

This is relevant to my interests (looking at the same $$), but I have a strong SoCal preference for post-grad

I wouldn't be surprised if Duke has equal or better placement power than UCLA in LA, and Duke is far superior in other major markets. You're getting a pretty huge upgrade for $15k.

Also have NYU and Berkeley at sticker but they are not being considered as that level of debt is untenable.

Even if you wanted California for sure, I'd still think about taking Duke.
