I think Iowa will give you in-state tuition after 1 year. And it's area is slightly lower cost. So it might be cheaper.

Minnesota has been established longer as a school that is consistently in the 20s, ranking-wise. Though both schools have been there for a while now. Minnesota also has a really sweet library, I'm told.

Just think it through. Visit both of them, and see what you think. Depends on what you want really. Both are solid schools.

Where do Iowa grads even go work?

EVERYWHERE.

... sorta. I kind of had the same thought that there is no home market, but I guess technically their home market is Omaha, even though a lot of graduates still go elsewhere. Iowa places well in pretty much every large Midwest market (Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Milwaukee, etc.)

Peer schools, but I think Minnesota has an edge. This comes down to your feel for the place.

That said Iowa (the state and the school) do not suck.

Minnesota. Home market + better reputation + probably better city.

w
+1. If money is the same, this really is a no-brainer.

Even in Des Moines or Council Bluffs, I doubt an Iowa grad is advantaged over a Minnesota grad except for distance.

Well, actually this was sort of hypothetical/moot. I got full scholarships at both, but I deposited at Minnesota. I just wanted to hear what others thought.


Really?? Why do that to us?
