I am very depressed and......don't know what to do.....
It now seems like I have to choose between UPenn and Cornell (both offering very low funding). Although the tution fees is much lower at Cornell, I am leaning towards UPenn. I would go study urban design and real estate development......
But..I am very stressed out .....imaging to be in huge debt (about 80K) when I graduate.
Do you think taking a huge loan is totally worth it?
I understand that the name of the school doesn't make any difference if you want to be a practicing professional.
My ultimate plan is to get a PhD and to become a prof at a school.
Would getting my master's degree at a well-known school help me get into a good PhD program? or
Should I just cancel this whole plan.......work for one year...and reapply to state universities where I can get good funding?
I am graduating this May with a major in architecture. I have 3.7 gpa and....I have been pretty serious with my studies and school. It has been my dream to study at an ivy league.....but now...my concern about money & loan is forcing me to go to a state school.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
