This is still quite theoretical for me as I still have a couple years to go. I am wondering, however, how much the prestige of a program matters. I'm wondering because while it does not have accreditation yet (anyone know how long that takes?), there may be a program in my home town by the time I would attend. I could live at home for free if this occurred, leaving me with only tuition costs to pay. So basically, how much would it being a really new program matter versus an already established one?
