I was accepted EA in December into Northeastern University's CCIS program with a combined major in Computer Science and Communication Studies. Although I was awarded the Ujima Scholarship of 15k and a university grant of around 18k, Northeastern would still cost me around 30k per year because the tuition is just that expensive.
I am well aware of all the amazing benefits of Northeastern CS program and as a minority female entering CS I can really see NEU as a place I would thrive as an individual. I have to pay for my own college degree so this would be a debt I would take on myself. So my real question is, does it really make sense to go 100k down for NEU's program and opportunities. Is this amount of money something that a lot of people take on?
Thank you for your help in advance!
