I've been debating whether to post this question for a week or so and have finally determined that it can't hurt to get additional thoughts/opinions. Trying to make a decision between the University of Toronto and Penn. Penn has been my number one choice since the beginning of the application process, but I am concerned about the debt I will incur in pursuit of a PennPlanning degree.
University of Toronto, on the other hand, has kind of come out of nowhere as a very appealing option. The program is extremely well respected in Canada and the University is well respected in the global academic community. The program is less expensive to begin with and they offered me a nice fellowship that brings the cost of tuition down even further. I just got back from Toronto and liked what I saw and heard. It is certainly considerably less flashy than Penn, but I am wondering how much that should matter.
If anyone has any thoughts on things I should be considering, ie: post degree prospects, the debt question, program strengths/weaknesses, or anything else, I would greatly appreciate it.
