UT Austin vs Rice for cs/ undecided
I have been accepted to both schools. However, I'm not sure where I want to go. I've made a pros-cons list, and the biggest factor it boils down to is cost, although flexibility to switch majors is nice. I haven't received a financial aid offer from Rice and frankly, don't think it's going to be great. I'm concerned with cost of attendance, especially since things are very financially uncertain right now. I have about $20,000 in scholarships for UT. I know there is a fixed rate tuition option at UT, while at Rice financial aid may not necessarily be guaranteed (that's my impression, at least). Does anyone have any advice? I live in Texas btw.7 replies
