I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I interviewed at six schools, and the only one I really got "the feeling" from is $130,000 more expensive (after all interests accrued) than my next favorite school I've been accepted at. I'm going to revisit the school again to see if that "feeling" persists, but even if it does, how will I know if its worth $130,000? The logical part of my mind is saying I will get essentially the same education at either school, I'll probably be happy wherever I end up, and one of them is considerably cheaper. Seems easy. Yet the other side is saying, "But you loved and felt comfortable at X school. You'll have the money in ten years anyway, go where you'll be happiest." How important do SDN'ers think "the feeling" is to deciding on a school compared to other factors? Who out there is making the logical decision and is anyone out there going for broke, quite literally?
