My uncle keeps telling me the place u graduate from undergrad doesn’t matter unless it’s a very top university like IVY league or something. He says other than that it’s really based off graduate school but idk if what u wanna become requires graduate school anyways.
I’d go with C for the aesthetic and not give a shit about the debt cuz ur a determined person who will be successful enough to pay it off
quality of education doesn't mean anything once you're in the real world, only MAYBE when applying for your first real job or if you go to an Ivy League school. After that it's all about experience. Save yourself some money and enjoy the experience without the guilt.
hwest14 is also right; u can graduate from a better school while saving money going to a regional campus or community college for the first 2 years. That's the path I took, it made the transition from high school to college a lot easier and future employers will only ever know where you graduate from.
B. don't do c because that is really stupid to be in so much debt when all ur going to do is take high school classes ur first 2 years, plus u still have graduate school which maybe u can consider going there once ur almost done w ur degrees
A for sure. I'm gonna be honest film is going to be hard field to go into. If you went to C and get all that debt, you will probably never be able to pay it off. Take the cheapest option for now and you can always transfer to B or C.
If you are going into film that's tricky. If you choose c consider a double major in something more secure (because of the debt). You won't be able to pay the debt off with a film degree right away. Maybe you can pair it with Marketing or something.
However, picking a university should not be a strategic decision. Tour each one. Whichever one you feel as if you fit in the best is the school for you. I went to the least prestigious school I was accepted to and am loving it. You need to follow your heart on this decision.
Don't go to A. If it's notorious for being a party school and you don't think it'll give you a decent education, then don't waste your time. Plus if you know it's a party school then employers know it's a party school.
I'd pick B. I love NYC and would love to live there, but over 100K in debt isn't worth it. Plus depending on where you are in NJ in school B, you can always take a day trip/weekend trip to NY.
You could also always transfer. But be careful bc a lot of credits may not transfer over and you might be stuck in school for an additional semester/year(s).
But don't stress your decision too much, because transferring is always an option and the right move to make if you settle in and realize the school you picked isn't for you.
Honestly, there's so many conflicting thoughts here and there's no right answer. It depends on you/your family's financial situation, what you feel most strongly about, and how certain you are about your path. Weigh those factors above all -- and then whatever school you go to, just CRUSH IT while you're there :). You can make a good career out of going anywhere if you work hard enough.
either way youre gonna be in debt and its not as bad as people make it out to seem b/c i mean i dont even feel like im in debt after going to school like my loans im paying back i dont pay back even that much a month so you should do what you feel is the best decision :)
I recommend the first option. Please please please do not take debt.
These are your youth years where you should be partying, meeting people, having tons of sex, developing on yourself etc. You shouldn't squander these years worrying about debt and trying to restrict your spending. Especially with a major like Film, you are not guaranteed to be able to land a well paying job to not worry about the debt. Even after school, your biggest worry should be mortgages and the sort which are pretty normal!
I strongly advise you to not take the huge amount of debt on yourself -- or any debt for that matter. If you want to study at the NY school you could always go there for a post graduate degree, a decision which will definitely not be as much of a burden on your financials as it is now.
Good luck with these next few years of your life! They are really precious and countless of opportunities lie to allow you to become the person you want to be. Don't hesitate to take them. Take care and godspeed :)
