Of my 12 total schools, one that I have applied to is Kent State University. I would be able to get free tuition if I were to go there. However, in terms of my GPA, SAT scores, and other aspects, I would consider myself somewhat over-qualified for Kent. I’ve applied to other schools, such as the University of Miami, U. of Maryland at College Park, and the George Washington University. These schools, I think, are more on-par with the academic scores and statistics that I have.
Obviously, though, I’ll have to see how much, if any, scholarship I get from these schools. It’ll be hard to top free tuition.
So, do you think it’s more worthwhile to go to KSU and not pay for tuition, or is it more worthwhile to go to a better quality school, like U of Miami or U of Maryland, and take out loans and have to pay them off over time?
By the way, I’m planning on majoring in Architecture and hopefully also getting an M.B.A. Luckily, Kent has a duel-degree program that combines these two degrees. Thoughts?
