I'm a Minnesota resident, and I'm looking to get away from Minnesota next year. I've been accepted to IU, and am still waiting on UMN (which I think I have low chances of getting into.)
I have visited both schools, and I like IU 1000x more (UMN is fine I guess, but it's nothing special). However, IU is a lot more expensive and my parents aren't too into me being 11 hours away. My dad's all up in the USNWR ratings and is saying that IU is ranked below UMN and therefore I'd be an idiot to go to IU when I could stay instate and go to a "better" and cheaper school.
If im interested in pursuing something English related, would I be better off staying here and going to UMTC or would IU be a good option? Since I really feel like IU-B might be the place for me, would going to IU be worth the OOS tuition?
