USD $12K Scholarship vs Cal Western Full Ride

Post by AverageMale » Tue Apr 01, 2014 1:13 pm

I have found forum posts regarding this topic, but the most recent one is three years old. I am in this situation now and would like to see if there is more current information on the issue, and what others in the same position are deciding and why. I have acceptances to USD and Cal Western, USD is offering $12K per year and Cal Western has offered me their full ride. I only applied to the San Diego schools, so these are my only real choices. I applied for part time enrollment so I could continue to work a part time job to help supplement. My career goals are to start my own practice after school. Is it a better option to go with the higher ranked school and acquire some debt, or to avoid debt?

Essentially is the price of the education I will receive at USD worth the additional cost of the program?

What are the stips for the scholarships? What are your goals? How much would you be taking out in loans for each school?
