Last fall, I posted a thread about how much debt is "worth it" for a masters in planning, which seemed to depend for most people on several factors, ranging from career goals to more personal reasons. Now that nearly everyone has heard back from their schools and (hopefully) knows where they are headed, I thought this would be an interesting thread to bring up at the end of the admission cycle.
Did you end up choosing a pricier option? Or, did you decide to opt for a less expensive school? Maybe you lucked out and received a large scholarship?
I ended up choosing a program that matched my interests very well and will not cost too much either. While I will be taking out a few loans (likely around 10k next year), I received a nice offer that will help offset some of those costs, so I feel fairly comfortable with my decision. The struggling economy definitely played a role in my thinking at least.
