I am in the process of applying for a Masters in Urban Planning degree (Fall 2011). At this point, my main concern for graduate school is funding/financial aid. Does anyone know of any urban planning programs that are notoriously bad or particulary generous when it comes to financial aid for their students?
I am from Chicago and will be applying to both the University of Illinois-Chicago and University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign this fall (in-state tuition obviously). However, I went to school on the east coast for undergrad (Johns Hopkins) and would not mind going to grad school on either the east or west coast.
Basically, I am worried about how much debt I will have after graduating with my degree and need guidance on how to curb it.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
