Pre-Dentistry program - CU Boulder vs DU


My kid got admitted into both schools - as an ED. We did our due diligence and visited both schools and we know very well the spirit in both of the campuses. While I understand the academic advantages for DU (small classes etc) there is a $10k difference/year between the schools - with Boulder being the cheapest. I guess my question would be - is it worth $40k difference to send my kid to DU vs CU Boulder ? Thank you
