legroschat Posted April 18, 2013 Share Posted April 18, 2013 Hello, I am new here, and am really struggling with an issue I would like some unbiased, external input on. I've been accepted to the UofT MLIS program, and the University of Manitoba archival studies program. The UofT program is upwards of 25k a year, after all has been said and done...tuition and books paid for, living expenses, etc. The UofM is infinitely more affordable, in addition to the fact that Winnipeg is a more affordable city than Toronto. However, of course, the UofT is a much, much better school. I'll be able to scrounge together the money for my first year at the UofT, but after that it will be financial aid. Do you think the name recognition of the UofT is worth 25k in student debt? I'm wanting to work internationally after my program, as well, so I would like to go to a school employers will recognize. However, the UofM offers a work placement as part of their program, so I know that experience would also be worthwhile. Thoughts? I would appreciate anyone's two cents. Thanks in advance.
