My son has been accepted to the Undergraduate Architecture Programs on some great schools and is trying to make a decision where to attend. Here are the schools and costs including room & board after scholarship money:
- Virginia Tech (ranked 4th to 8th on different lists) / Cost per year: $44K
- Auburn (ranked 11th to 13th) / Cost per year: $32K
- Texas A&M (unranked) / Cost per year: $24K
He is trying to gauge the true value of the higher ranking/reputation vs lower cost. Any advice and insight will be super valuable; thanks in advance!
