Is going out of state worth it?
I am currently in the process of deciding which colleges to apply to, and I have narrowed my list down to UNL, K-State, UT Austin, Texas A&M, and maybe the Air Force Academy. However, cost to attend school is a large concern for me. I live in Nebraska so my in-state school options are limited and really UNL is the only in-state college that I am considering. Not because the others are bad schools, but because it has the best engineering program, which I plan to enter, in Nebraska. This really leaves me the option of going to UNL or going out of state. My question is whether or not going out of state is worth it? My ACT composite is a 32 so I don't believe that getting admitted will be an issue, but like I said, price is a huge concern. Any ideas or even recommendations towards schools would be awesome!
