TBCTT Posted September 12, 2013 Share Posted September 12, 2013 I live in Illinois and work full time at the moment. Moving away to DC area simply for grad school does not seem like something I can really do at this time. Illinois has some good schools obviously, (northwestern / UChicago) and luckily I live near chicago. But these schools are also very expensive. I hear horror stories from both the internet and people I work with about student loans and that is something I would like to avoid. There are other schools in the area such as NIU (claimed to have a top rank MPA program) and Depaul University that are good, but obviously not as great as these upper tier schools are. Would going to one of these less expensive schools really be a shot in the foot when it comes to future job outlook? I guess with great cost would come great opportunity...and that is what I am worried about Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
