Bentley Transfer

edited April 26 in Bentley University
I was recently accepted to Bentley as a transfer student. At my current school, I am a freshman dual major in Accounting and Finance. I am looking to transfer because the student environment, most students are not as motivated as me. However, my school has allowed me to gain two internships in my freshman year at a private equity firm and Insurance company working in the finance department. They are known to send many students to the big four and the faculty is great and very helpful. I am currently paying about $15,000 a year and Bentley would be $38,000 a year. Is it worth coming out of college with a significant amount of debt? I plan to eventually go to grad school. I am having a hard time deciding because at my current school I am a top student and stand out which has allowed me to gain more opportunities than I would potentially at Bentley. Is it worthwhile for me to transfer for the Bentley education?

    How much debt, total, will you have including what you owe for your current school? Compare those number between current school and Bentley

    @Newengland2351 same situation I'm in also. I'm hesitant on the idea of taking loans, and what not. But I heard feedback from other students saying that if you work hard, do the internships that the school offers, and network yourself to companies when they visit the school then you have a successful chance of getting a high secure job. But if you're just going to school because of the "name", and don't work hard then there is no point of paying that much. Are you paying the money, or your parents?
