    Hello...as you can probably tell from the title, I've had the good fortune of being accepted to both Duke and Harvard. Though I know I am blessed to be in such a position, I'm way in over my head and so I have had a very difficult time making up my mind. Basically, Harvard is Harvard, but Duke is giving me a full scholarship. Since I'm not really sure what effect debt has on the future career of a doctor, I am not sure what to do. Additionally, since I'm from a small town in Texas, I really don't understand the bigger politics of being a Harvard alum, etc. In other words, from what you guys have seen, is the name "Harvard" worth $200,000 in debt. I know everyone's first response is "no", but seriously, I sometimes think that it is given its cultural weight. I would appreciate any thoughts on these subjects from those in the know.
