should i even consider University of Houston?

i got a full ride to the University of Houston, but it's a Tier 2 school.

I already have a full ride the Wayne State University, and I've gotten letters from Yale, Cornell, Brown, Harvard, and Columbia.

I know it sounds like I'm trying to brag, but I want to be honest so everyone knows the situation I'm in. My mom passed away recently, so my family doesn't have much money. We were never that rich to begin with, so now money is an issue.

I know ivies give good financial aid, but still, should I consider the full ride?

    So, you're saying that you have full ride offers at UHouston and Wayne State, and early letters from 5 of 8 Ivies, but no FA packages from them.

    And you're trying to decide which to attend now, the last day in June?

    That's confusing since matriculation decisions were due in May.

    Normally I'd just close this thread and direct you to the sticky thread at the top of this forum for where to post College A v B threads, but you've peaked my interest.
