Ok, I asked this before, but now it's official. I was just offered a spot off the waitlist at the University of Vermont which only had 11 slots available in the first place. However, I was almost set on just going to an in-state school Bloomsburg University which is an hour and a half drive from my house. UVM was my "dream school" in that I am in love with area/ program/ and school. Easy decision right, except the tuition at UVM for out-of-state is $32,000 a year and the tuition at Bloomsburg U. is around $13,000 a year. While they both have a great program, is it worth the 40,000K more to come out of graduate school in student loans with?? For those who are already in or nearing the field, is it a big deal where you went to school? Will your salary when you graduate, make up for the student loans or be a struggle to pay off? Or would it be a better idea to stay in-state and do my CFY in the city of Burlington, VT where UVM is located? Or should I just say, the heck with it and go where I want? Any advice welcome!
