I am researching different grad schools, and I have 2 questions for you guys: 1. Which schools are the least expensive? 2. How much does the prestige and ranking of the school really matter after you graduate? Does it affect your job prospects? I currently attend the University of Kansas, for psychology. I'd like to go into epidemiology. My school has an MPH program, but I don't think it's very well known in the public health arena... I would get in-state tuition though. I won't have any debt from my undergrad studies, but going 40 or 50 grand into debt for a master's makes me uneasy.
