Hi,I got accepted to Purdue university college of engineering for the mechanical engineering program.Well,as i was not accepted at other top schools such as Stanford and Caltech i am thinking of going to Purdue.its a bit costlier and they dont have any need blind financial aid system and on top of that i was not qualified for financial aid because my sister and brother are also going to college and my parents combined income is in the 80 to 100k bracket.My flatly said he cannot pay more that 15k an year so i kinda ran into trouble.i figured out that loans would be the option.After some math i figured out that i needed 100k for 4 years.
Now my question is.....Is education at Purdue worth taking a 100k loan..? The main thing is i need a good job after i graduate.So do Purdue engineering graduates get hired easily or do they need to work out.How are the on-campus interviews at Purdue..? Do all the engineering grads get hired.? or do they have unemployment among the engineering grads..? Any inputs from Purdue students,Alumni or people highly familiar with Purdue is high appreciated.Thank you.
