after actually looking into cost of living etc, i realized that even with the scholly it's still going to cost more than some of my other higher ranked schools - does smu match/compete? i'm big on prestige (even though i kind of try not to be), but i also already have $100k in loans from undergrad so i'm trying to keep an open mind...
Dallas is dirt-cheap to live compared to every other major city. I guess it's more expensive than Lexington or Winston-Salem, but not by much.
sorry, should have clarified by saying col + tuition... combined the total cost would still be more than other higher ranked schools.
