2 for 2 so far.

One thing at MD ticks me off a bit though. Everyone keeps talking about how Maryland has great ROI, and sure, when you look at the tuition it looks that way. The only problem is that they also have $12k(!!) in fees on top of tuition every year so out-of-state costs lands around$38k. While not more than many other schools, it isn't less either..

I sure hope they give some scholarship $.

But yea,$38K isn't even remotely close to "cheap" .... Heck, some of the ultra elites are only a few grand more than that.

I'm a tar heel myself. So I'll be in a (good) bind if I get accepted to UNC on Feb 5th. Wife works in DC, but I'd get in-state tuition at Carolina and its higher ranked.

Thanks guys. I'm also in at Wake Forest with some cash. Also applied to UNC (Rd 2.) and Georgetown (applying rd 2). I'm actually all over the place as far as where I want to go. My wife is up in DC (she has her dream job up there) so if I go up there I'll be with her, but I do think Carolinas program is better (and cheaper) and I REALLY like Wake's small size program despite its lower ranking. But then again, if I stay in NC we'd have to do the commute thing for 2 years.

I'll probably make a final decision hours before the deposit is due when I know all my options. Where's that magic 8 ball when you need it?
