Michigan V. Wisconsin Undergrad
My college decision is now narrowed down to UW Madison and UMich. I would typically take UMich in a heartbeat, but I was given no financial aid, and paying for it would be pretty difficult for my family and I. My parents are saying they would do what they can to make it work, but I would realistically need to take on $100k myself in loans. The other option is in state tuition at UW Madison, and possibly a few local scholarships that are only paid out if I stay in Wisconsin.
I didn't apply to Ross, and would have to try to transfer in after freshman year. At UW I was a direct admit to the business school, and would probably try to double major in finance and econ. Out of undergrad I'd like to work in IB in the Chicago area. Is Michigan econ worth double the cost of UW? I've visited both schools, and I like UMich quite a bit more, but I'm having a hard time justifying taking on 6 figures of debt for undergrad.
I'd really appreciate any input, thank you.
