I have already been accepted to my state school (U TN), and I am very excited about the school. However, I just received an interview invite to a private school (creighton) approximately 700 miles away. This school was my number one choice, shot-in-the-dark-type school. Problem is, my state school is 18K per year tuituion while this private school is 35K. I am trying to decide wheter or not to fork over the great amount of money for a plane ticket, hotel, and the cost of missing work 2 days to interview at a school that I will probably love, but can't decide if I'd ever attend for the extra cost! So my question is, is there any justification in going an extra 17K to attend Creighton over UT?
