rutgers or cmu for chemE?

<p>it's kind of ridiculous how different these two schools are.</p>

<p>full ride at rutgers, honors program, all that</p>

<p>53k/yr at cmu, no scholarship, most likely no finaid</p>

<p>I pretty much just fit the nerdy image, which works fine at both places, but the money issue is killing me.</p>

<p>I care a lot about the quality of education, personalities of students, and... how I'd ever pay off those loans if I went to cmu. (I would appreciate if someone explained how that works, thanks!)</p>
