RE: Better to attend cheap and academically mediocre college or expensive but prestigious?
If you plan on going to graduate school I would say for the most part the cheaper school would be more beneficial. If it's a smaller school also you have a lot more opportunity through your professors for internships outside of the school. When you graduate for the most part a lot of profession look to see you have that piece of paper, grades and if you also have good experience, like I said with a internship for example you have a good shot. Here's an example from my experience. I attended a NAIA school and went on to apply for a graduate position. I was picked over D2 and D3 applicants based a lot on my experience for my internship they did not have. Did they probably have a better curriculum then where I went too? Probably so. I graduated with a kinesiology degree and we didn't even have a lab were those division 2's probably did. Just a little insight, sorry for the rambling! Good luck on your decision and if you take the cheaper route you could be thanking yourself later when your college debt free!
