I am planning to get my master in Urban Planning starting this fall.
I applied to 9 schools, and just got admissions from 8 of them. Honestly speaking I didn't do an extensive research on these schools and their individual programs(just picked 9 good ranking schools). Because of that I am rather confused about where I should go.
I guess I desperately need help... Here are the schools and the financial aid they are offering, could someone please give me some guidance
Columbia - no financial aid
U Michigan - scholarship for 1 1/2 semesters' tuition
UCLA - no financial aid
Cornell - 1 semester's tuition
U of Washington - 1 1/2 semesters' tuition
NYU - no financial aid
USC - scholarship for full tuition (2 years)
U Penn - no financial aid
By the way, I plan to work in the public sector upon graudation, preferrably staying in Los Angeles or at least California. I also applied to UC Berkeley and am still waiting for the decision.
Please someone help me!!!!
