UNC or Williams College
I am currently a High School senior looking to attend college in the fall of 2020. I have narrowed my college choice between two schools: Williams College & UNC Chapel Hill. I am planning on double majoring in Economics and Math, and I am also looking to go into finance, preferably IB or trading. At Williams, I have to pay almost full tuition, around $73k a year, whereas at UNC I would only have to pay around $24k since I am in-state student. If I were to go into UNC, I would then apply to the business school at Kenan-Flagler. I know Williams College has a much better job placement and recognition into NYC than UNC, but my financial situation at both colleges is what is making me hesitant on fully committing to one college. Any advice on which college to pick? Should I carry that heavy burden of student loans from Williams but secure a nice job and pay it back? Or should I attend UNC instead and risk losing job opportunities and connections that I would obtain at Williams? I love both schools, and I can see myself fit in nicely at both places. The major factor I am considering is what I obtain after college. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
