Need help! U of M or George Washington

<p>So I'm deciding between U-Mich and George Washington University. I really want to go to GW, living in Washington D.C. has always been a dream of mine, and it would go perfect with my intended major of political science/international relations. I received $26,000 in financial aid from GW. I also got into U-Mich, which is instate for me. So that will cost me around $14,000 with scholarships and such. My Dad will only contribute $8,000, and my mom can't burden $18,000 on her own. Should I take out loans to go to GW, or just stay instate and have no debt. I plan on going to Grad school.</p>

<p>If going to George Washington University and living in DC is a big dream of yours and you can manage to pay for it, then go for it. However, going to U of Michigan won't give you any debt since you are instate, so if I were you, that's where I would go.</p>

<p>Michigan for sure.</p>

<p>Help please!</p>

<p>If you end up at Michigan, take heart. It's not the same as living in DC for the full four years, but this is an interesting "Semester in DC" program the U has started:</p>
