<p>The schools im considering are University of Michigan (top choice, out-of-state though), Ohio State University (in-state, Honors program), Case Western Reserve University, and Tulane University. I am thinking about going the sciences, possibly neuroscience, but I am also considering a career in business.</p>
<p>Ok here's the story:</p>
<p>I love Michigan- its atmosphere, academics, and reputation. Its top-notch in just about every field. I loved it there...ahhh
BUT, since I'm out-of-state, I gotta pay a LOT of money. I got about 11,243 in financial aid (4,618 grants and 6,625). which means i'd have to pay about $25,000 up front, and the remaining ($13,500 per year cost after graduation). </p>
<p>The other three colleges (OSU, CWRU, and Tulane) i'd have to pay only about $14-15,000 up front. I'd only pay the $2,000 per year after graduation for OSU and about $5,000 per year after grad. for the other two. </p>
<p>I like Tulane the second-best after Mich, and OSU a close third. CWRU is the last option. But like I said before Michigan is my first choice. Michigan is reputed best for the majors I'm conisdering (business or sciences). <<so is="" prestige="" and="" preferrence="" worth="" 25k="" vs.="" 15k="" over="" four="" years??="">> My family total family income from my parents is around $80,000 and my sister will be attending college next year. So we'd be on a really tight budget. Also, is the OSU Honors program good, is it worth going to over Michigan?? But coming from a good college will help you when you look for a job or grad. school. </so></p>
<p>I need a lot help please. I have about 5 days to make the decision!!
