I'd recommend going to the most affordable school that will allow you to pursue your intended career. Paying sticker at anywhere other than the top 3 is likely more for ego than a legitimate enhancement of career opportunity.
I don't think paying 45k sticker for #30 UNC is ego?
IMO, it depends on what sticker is.
For me, #35 Georgia at 60k > #71 Pitt at 37K (w/scholly).
That being said, I'm not sure any school is worth more than, absolute max, 75k, and even then I'd be uncomfortable. I think it depends on how much debt you are willing to assume.
As to the original poster's question, I applied to Boston as a super reach, and now, If I do get in im 99.9% sure I'd reject them with how much they charge.
So are you saying that MVPB at sticker would not be a good choice? That thought makes me a little sick...
