Honest assessment, does the name actually care "national" recognition in that I would come back home and compete against the large closely ranked public? Furthermore, chances of actually taking the degree outside of ones home region and finding interesting/decent pay careers? Also, anyone intending on doing a dual degree? I don't really like the basic options of the MBA or the MA. ND has some very interesting grad programs, how flexible are they, and does anyone know someone who did/plans on doing an interesting dual degree?
Not the thread intended to answer these questions, but there are active NDLS students in here so I figured I'd throw it out there!
It'd depend on your and your family's financial situation. I'd do it in a heartbeat only because I know I have a backup fund and if that were not enough, my parents could bail me out (not that I'd EVER want that to happen, but that is the worst case scenario). Hell, for ND, I'd do it for 60k total debt.
