I Can't Decide Help!!!

I was admitted to St. Johns University in the honors program with a full scholarship which sounds like a really attractive offer but I'm concerned because SJU doesn't have a much name recognition. I was also admitted to Fordham University with a $16,000 scholarship and Manhattan college with a $25,000 scholarship. I was also admitted to UCONN which isn't ~that~ expensive. I want to study Political Science. I just don't know what to do. I'm still waiting for more decisions to come back but these are the major ones I'm considering. HELP PLEASE!

    SJU has name recognition. It's known across the nation.

    Which do you like the best? How will the remaining costs get covered at all of your schools?

    The amount of scholarship doesn't matter, what matters is 1) your parents ' budget and 2) when you calculate (tuition, fees, room, board) - (scholarships, grants), what's your result for each school?
    Please post info below.
