Just got accepted to Grad School

At one point, North Carolina was my top choice, but after going through the process and meeting with UNC and GW administrators, GW started overtaking UNC.

But.. UNC is a higher ranked MBA program, but GW is cheaper. And GW won't give me an answer for a month!

Never thought I'd be in a position to turn down the Tar heels....

Congrats...................

Word to the Wise............DON'T GET TOO FAR INTO DEBT for an Education!! Keep the total college debt ratio equal to / or less than what you expect to earn in your first year utilizing your degree. Graduating College with what is in effect a mortgage (non-disbursable in bankruptcies BTW) will stunt your financial growth by 10 to 15 years or more vs. paying it as you go. There is NO SHAME (I think the shame should be on those contributing nothing towards their education costs) in working on campus or co-oping.

Considering UNC for undergrad myself.

Gotta bump my act up a few more points though to afford out of state, currently have a 30 though so I do have a fair amount of options.



Congratulations! I finished touring Clemson today, campus culture is ideal and I can go in with 30 credit hours under my belt from high school.

Hope you make the right choice!
