Am I crazy?

Postby manbearwig » Wed Jan 27, 2010 12:45 am

I've gotten into GW/BU/BC/W&M but most likely I will be attending Temple due to an awesome scholarship. I'm not throwing away my career and future for going to a T2 school, right? Another important factor is that I want to stay in the Philly area.

Not including cost of living, yes. (And I have awesome parents who may help me out a little with that.)

I dread this decision... I have no advice.

HTH.

You're crazy in every scenario except one: if you really do want to stay in Philadelphia. If that's truly the case, then I think it makes sense if you're looking at paying sticker at the others.

I really do want to stay in Philly. Though, at BU and W&M, I wouldn't pay sticker, though it would still be more than the Temple sticker price.

You're not crazy if you want to work in philly. It doesnt make sense to attend BU/GW/ETC and drag 100k in debt over to PA.

+1

If Philly is where you're gonna go and where you're gonna stay, then taking little debt, if any, at Temple makes perfect sense. At least that's the way I see it.
