Dear all,

I was admitted to the 3 colleges named in subject line. Which one should I choose?

1. USC: I received scholarships totaling $23,000, what I have to pay=$35K
2. Emory: I received grants and scholarships totaling $29,000, what I have to pay=$27K
3. Ohio state university: received scholarships of $15K, what I have to pay=$9K (I am Ohio resident).

I also got in to Duke, but I got no scholarships, I have to pay everything.

I intent to do business major. Emory's business school is supposedly better than USC's and OSU's, but I prefer the latter schools' school spirit (and sports teams) to Emory's (lack of) school spirit. But I also kind of want to get out of Ohio and explore a new city (Atlanta or LA?) and have a warmer climate too.

Do you think it's worth it to spend more money and go to a school that's more prestigious or just take advantage of the scholarships I got at OSU?

Thank you!
