<p>Hi I was just recently accepted off the waitlist at UNC so I'm recondsidering my decision to go to UT for the fall of 2010. I am in state at UT and I have lived in Austin my entire life. The OOS cost would definitely have an impact, but I have heard that it is possible to get in state tuition at UNC by doing a few things. Any input on my decision would be helpful.</p>


<p>What do you plan on studying at UNC? Are you in any programs at UT that you'll likely stick with for the next four years? That could help put some more perspective.</p>

<p>both schools are great, if your majoring in something business stay at UT. Go to UNC if you want to get away</p>

<p>Where did you feel more comfortable? what is your planned major, and which school is stronger in that field?</p>

<p>I'm planning to major in economics.</p>

<p>For economics I would do UT.</p>

<p>if you plan on working in Texas, go to UT.</p>

<p>My understanding is that UT has a pretty strong economics department. I don't know much about UNC though, sorry.</p>

<p>UNC is awesome. It's not $40k awesome.</p>

<p>Overall, UNC is stronger in liberal arts. However, Econ is a strength at Texas.</p>

<p>Both towns are cool as hell. Austin is way bigger and also isn't next to Durham.</p>

<p>Both ways are a win, but by going to UNC you are probably going to end up in the east in the future. If you want to work in Texas, UT is going to be your choice.</p>

<p>Consider the hassle of moving to and from Chapel Hill vs moving in town; also, you can only go home for a visit once or twice a semester.</p>

<p>bump please</p>

<p>Go to the one you like ......................</p>

<p>If money is not a consideration,</p>

<p>I would choose UNC. Nationally considered a more prestigious school.</p>

<p>Either way you have great choices.</p>
