UChicago or free ride at University of Maryland College Park in Biology major

Both my husband and I are immigrant and have only high school education. We know very little and would need your comment and suggestion as to the school selection. Both my daughter and us like UChicago a lot (e.g. school and its programs and faculty. We also like the environment with intelligent students and exposure/experience with international students). She will be biology major but don't know the future path yet. In UM she will be in a Integrated Life Science program. The cost of attending UChicago is $30K per year. I really do want to support her and send her to UChicago. Does it worth paying $30K though? Some told me undergrad school doesn't matter. I think we could tighten the belt for her undergrad education. What is the sensible and best choice for her?
