Is Brandeis prestige worth the money?
I’m currently a senior in HS and I just got accepted to Brandeis, my dream school. I am so excited and would love to attend, but I unfortunately did not receive any money. My family is in the awkward middle class area where we don’t get any financial assistance but can’t afford to pay full price. My other two top schools are Clark University and Lewis & Clark College, both of which I received merit aid for, making them 20-25k cheaper than Brandeis. My family can probably scrape together enough to pay for Brandeis, but is it worth it? Would going to Brandeis over one of the other two schools help me more in life? Basically, I can’t decide if the prestige of Brandeis is worth the money.17 replies
