Hilltopmom Posted October 6, 2017 Share Posted October 6, 2017 (edited) Wow- howâ€™s that for a loaded question?? Just musing aloud here cause ds asked me to talk this out with him for perspective. He had his interview last night with a private school and came home raving about them. So... How do you decide when the â€œfancy privateâ€ school is worth it vs the â€œgood enoughâ€ public? Financial aid packages will ultimately make this decision for him I think, so it may be a moot point anyways. But I do think that sometimes the private bigger name school with great internship & co op opportunities and great placement rate after graduation IS a better choice than the cheaper state school with the same major, but not as many options.. even if it costs more. Aahhhh, all this college stuff is Hurting my brain & making me feel like I know nothing I was all set to continue to encourage him mainly about the state schools he liked and now heâ€™s asking good questions about the possible pluses of the private I hadnâ€™t considered. Like, is the private really better after all? Edited October 6, 2017 by Hilltopmom Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
