Scholarship at WashU vs Sticker at NYU

Postby mockstar » Thu Feb 25, 2010 8:38 pm

So I know these questions pop up all the time, and I never thought I'd be asking one and yet here I am.
Here's the situation. I'm in at NYU, visiting at the end of March. I applied for the RTK but doubt I'm going to get it. I'm also in at WashU and just found out today that I've received almost a full scholarship. I am still waiting to hear from some other top schools (Michigan, Penn, HLS, Yale) but am not really counting on them.
Now, if I can afford to pay sticker at NYU without loans or anything, is it worth it to shell out a few 100K and go there over almost a fully scholly at WashU? That is, is NYU that much of a better school, would my job prospects be that much better, etc.? This is all assuming I like both the same (haven't visited either yet). Thanks to anyone who takes the time to answer my silly question :-P

I vote for NYU. See: this thread (viewtopic.php?f=1&t=109049), in which people would take Michigan at sticker over a WUSTL full ride.

NYU. This isn't a close call.

Alrighty, I will definitely take those opinions (and that thread) into consideration. Thanks!
