WUSTL (Sticker) v. Buffalo ($)

Postby TransferQuestion22 » Tue Jul 16, 2013 11:53 am

Does the top 20 ranking justify the extra 80k (approx.)? I have lived in Buffalo for several years now, working in Buffalo after graduation would be convenient but not mandatory (although my fiancee may disagree with that statement). I feel like WUSTL would provide a lot more flexibility down the road, however, the additional money is frightening.

Assuming your grades are pretty good, Imo, you should stay where you are. That's too much debt for WUSTL/UMN/T30. The odds of comfortably paying that back as a wustl transfer are not good

If you want to work in Buffalo, this seems a very easy choice.
