Personally, I would choose Northwestern. I also am an Oregon resident. I was accepted at OHSU but chose to matriculate at a private med school on the East Coast.

OHSU is expensive for a state school and generally its financial aid packages consist of loans, no grants.

I receive a grant from my private med school that covers my entire tuition, so I just take out loans for my living expenses. I will graduate with about $100,000 in med school debt. It would have been much higher at OHSU. And I am not interested in primary care so it was a no brainer for me.

Northwestern is a great school in a great location. Don't assume that Northwestern will be more expensive than OHSU. You may receive a grant from Northwestern that will make it less expensive than your state school.

Obviously, this is a decision based on Derek Rose or Brandon Roy. This is a very tough choice, but I would go with Derek Rose since he is a scoring PG, whereas, B-Roy generally needs a distributor to get him the ball; though, he can run the point if needed. I was just acknowledging your avatar as it seems to be a pressing issue.

I would go with Roy who is a more versatile scorer, plays defense and is a better leader.

As a guard I don't know if you can be more versatile than D-Rose, except for Kobe. It's really a win-win for the OP though.
