I am considering two schools that I like very much: UT-San Antonio and Tulane. I liked Tulane the best by quite a bit, but the debt!! Ooooh, the debt. It's ranking /prestige is not right at the top (in fact, i'm not too clear on how it's regarded generally), but the students match very well and are enthusiastic about their school. I'd love to hear from students at any of the above mentioned schools in regard to the question which I'm sure is an old topic by now: Is a middle tier private school worth it???
