Valentine Posted November 30, 2015 Share Posted November 30, 2015 Hi there, I'm in the position of being accepted to two schools, for which I'm grateful, and attempting to decide between them! I'd appreciate any guidance or tidbits of advice you're willing to impart. School A Pros: Can live with my parents, sunnier area so less emotionally affected by the seasons. Cons: Bottom quartile of rankings, 40k less then School B. Away from husband. School B Pros: Top 50 ranked school, 40k more, during interview they gave a sense of the school caring about students' well-being and always seeking ways of improving the program. Cons: Alone, away from husband AND family, Pacific Northwest school so I will be more emotionally affected by the seasons. Do I choose a program that's better for my mental and physical well-being (School A) or a school that seems to be higher quality (School B)? How much does program quality matter to future job prospects? Is a higher ranked program worth $40k (40%!) more than the lower ranked program? Will a higher-ranked program make me an arguably better PA? Thanks for any help you might be able to offer! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
