Hey everyone, Is anyone else out there trying to decide between going to their state school and a more expensive private school? A lot of people have told me that tuition and the amount of debt you accrue are the most important things to think about over name, reputation,rank etc.. What do you all think? More specifically, i'm trying to decide between penn and maryland. Penn has a great name and it seems more of their students go on to specialty programs. MD is also a good school plus it's about 50k less over the 4 years. (It's actually 100k less if you live in state but I don't think they're going to give me in-state tuition...complicated). Any opinions?
