<p>Hi everyone, I got accepted to both University of Illinois Urbana Champaign and Illinois Institute of Technology and I dont know which one to pick.
I want to study both Computer Science and Japanese ( although it is not offered in IIT and is my deam since I was little to learn this language)
I am leaning more towards UIUC but the thing that is stopping me is the money.
I reciently got my permanent residency and I couldnt file For FAFSA on time so I didnt get
the MAP grant and I got little Financial Aid from the University so in order to attend UIUC I have to get about 12000 in loans the first year ( but I think it will only be for the first year because next year I will aplly for FAFSA on time and get more money), Also UIUC didnt accept me in the college of Engineering ( only in the College of general education) so Im planning on transfering next year.</p>
<p>On the other side IIT is offering me a full ride for the next 4 years!!, although They dont offer Japanese nor the Campus Experience. Also It doesnt have as good ranking in Computer Science as UIUC.</p>
<p>So I dont know What to pick, Is UIUC really worth the loans? ( lets say that I finish my degree with 40000 in loans - a little exagerated)</p>
