I'm extremely fortunate to have to choose between a full ride to Central Michigan (tuition+housing+$500 for books every year) or a regular admission to University of Michigan with in state tuition (right around 30,000 with tuition and housing). I have no idea what to weigh in this situation.
I am not entirely clear on what career path I'd like to go on. I'm currently debating between medicine or law as my top two choices. (they're so different so I know this doesn't help much) My current mindset is that UofM gives me more room to explore academically and more wiggle room, but the financial burden is still a lot to consider. Central Michigan has a medical school so that would be the only path I would seriously consider at central.
My parents are helping out with what they can, but will most likely leave me to pay for the last two years of my undergraduate degree if I choose UofM. Chances are I will go on to either law school or (hopefully) medical school.
Any idea on what I should do? I would appreciate any insight!
