George Washington vs Georgia State

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm currently trying to decide between these two schools. I got a grad assistantship to GW, but still in the end will have to take out around 40k in loans for the two years. The program and city seems like a better fit for me, with their specific labs and professors, and the grad assistantship means I would gain a lot of unique experiences with clinic, research, and TAing. I'm not sure, however, if it's worth the cost. For GSU there is a possibility I can get a full tuition waiver, and even if not, it is still cheaper than GW. It's also closer to family and Atlanta is cheaper than DC. Basically, not sure if going to a new location (I really don't want to stay in Georgia), at a more prestigious school is worth 40k in the end. Part of me is thinking I should just go to the cheaper school, then afterwards can move to any new location, but I'm not sure. Any advice?

Congrats!!! Did you decide yet or do you still need some advice? 

I ended up deciding on Georgia state! Cheaper and closer to home, and still an all around good program.
