I found another thread like this, but from 2008. Not sure how things have changed since that time. I've been accepted to both Wash U in St. Louis and U Chicago. I visited Wash U three times and they have offered me a merit based full ride scholarship. With need based grants, etc., U Chicago comes out about the same, but I would have to work there for some of the money. I was convinced that Wash U was it, until my visit to U Chicago this past week. I love it there. Mom and Dad want me to go with the best money deal. I could go to either, but I was really impressed by U Chicago. The Wash U scholarship is renewable every year. We worry that as my parents income changes, each year, my need based grants could change.
Please help convince me.
