I had everything all figured out until last night. Started dating this girl almost two years ago. She's a year ahead of me in schol due to high school college credit, even though she's 4 months younger than me. I worked my tail off (taking 21 credit hours right now, for example) to graduate at the same time as her. We spent time finding graduate schools that would work for both of us, and applied at those schools. She got accepted at FIU before I did, and they gave her a deadline to accept a tuition waiver and TA position, so she took it. I got accepted to FIU as well, but last night she sits me down and says "I want you to go to UCF." Well that was the start of a 2 hour conversation which ended with her saying "I don't know what I want, so I'm breaking up with you." She says we'll see about getting back together at the end of summer, but she wants to take some time apart to make sure that dating me is what she wants. So, I'm in at UCF and FIU. Few facts: Tuition: UCF: $12k FIU: $32K Average Pay After Graduation: UCF: $50k FIU: $59k UCF has offered me a $3k scholarship, FIU might but I don't know. The UCF MBA, I could do taking out only a small loan, probably ten grand or under. FIU would require atleast a thirty grand loan, more if they don't offer me a scholarship. I think part of the pay difference might be the living conditions down there being more expensive. In terms of long term pay differences, I imagine they are similar. I did my undergrad degree in Econ at UCF, and I kind of want to get out and try another school. But, it would mean going a lot more in debt, which would delay things like buying a house for several years. I don't know if the girl and I will patch things up, but the schools are 4 hours apart. We'd still see each other every once in a while if we went to seperate schools. Can anyone tell me some really good reason why I shouldn't go to UCF to save the money?
