Out-Of-State for all.
Vanderbilt: Human and Organizational Development
UCLA: Business Economics
Alabama: Make-Your-Own-Major to simulate Vandy’s HOD program
Alabama is tuition-free, and I’m in the honors college. No financial aid to Vandy or UCLA. That said, I won’t have to take out loans wherever I go.
My question is, if I like the vibe of all of the schools equally, would it be dumb not to take the money and go to Alabama? When I talked to my school’s college counselor, she said going there wouldn’t hurt my chances of getting into a top graduate program in business or law, and that I might be better off because I would be able to get more attention / internships than I would if I were at another school. Can anyone speak to this? Is she right?
Also, does anyone have experience being a “higher-tier” student at a lower-ranked school and what that experience is like? Positives / negatives?
Any input would be awesome. Thanks in advance.
