I have been very stressed out trying to make this decision, especially with only two weeks left in the decision process! For those who do not know, Eminence scholar entails a full ride to ohio state, including room and board (even if off campus), a faculty mentor, and a $3,000 dollar enrichment fund. Chicago has quoted me at around $20,000 for the first year (assuming this will go down because my brother will be in college next year). My family takes in about 100k after taxes per year if that helps with perspective. I plan on studying philosophy and economics, and most likely pursing a law degree after. Which school will give me a better chance to do this? which will allow for a better return? which encapsulates a better experience academically and socially? I feel like if I go anywhere but Chicago I will regret passing up the opportunity, especially if I do not end up going to law school, but at the same token I don't want to be a financial burden. Free college is free college so there's that. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated; what would you do?
