Need help choosing which school to attend

I'm currently choosing between Umass Amherst and Brandeis University, and I'm struggling to decide which one would be the better fit for me.

I got in as a marketing major for Umass Amherst (I also got into the commonwealth honors college) and business major for Brandeis. I am an international student living in MA, and I plan to double major in college (though I haven't decided on the second major).

I prefer Brandeis University's smaller campus and student population/ location, but Umass Amherst's cost of attendance is much cheaper ($50k compared to $30k; however I am currently appealing for more financial aid for Brandeis). My parents want me to go to Brandeis, but I just don't know if it's worth paying that much money for my undergrad.

I appreciate any advice!

    Considering the schools involved, it would be unwise to take on any unnecessary debt for your undergraduate education.

    Isenberg at UMass is excellent, and the Commonwealth Honors College is the icing on the cake. I would go to UMass.
