I got accepted to U.Penn for grad school in the city and regional planning program which is 2 hours away and it will total about $50000, an overall cost that is about $20,000 more than University or Maryland College Park which is right down the street from me. I know Penn is a good school, but i'm trying to figure if the ivy league name will make that much of a difference in my career (City and Regional Planning). If not, then could save a lot of money that I don't have by going to Maryland. I'd really appreciate any advice on which school might be better, because I feel like this is the biggest decision of my life and I can't find any information anywhere about how important ivy leagues are. Penn definately is a beautiful city I would like to live in, i just don't know if it's worth it.
