Downstate= 35,000/year, 10 minute walk from my house (slim chance I'll prove in-state residency, and pay only ~20,000/year.) UMDNJ-NJMS= 13,000/year, 1 hour commute, minimum, from my house. (slim chance I'll be awarded a full scholarship.) ----Schools are academically similar, I think. ----For certain reasons, I can't move closer. What sayest thou?
