I already know that they’re considered the best around, I wanted to ask a question more concerned more about broader studies. I really want to learn a different language and study abroad, so I’m already scheduled to attend one of the better local universities in my area. Luckily I’m going basically for free with an opportunity to get around 3k back in a refund, from grants received from going to local public high school.
My problem is if I do choose to transfer to Gnomon, providing I can scrape up a worthy portfolio(I think it’s required, not sure though), I’d have to pay to fly from Missouri all the way to California and pay at least 10k a year for an apartment(roughly). Currently I’m not going in debt at all and I planned to spend extra funds to travel abroad to the country I plan to lean the language of.
Would going to Gnomon be worth going into 30-40k debt(provided no scholarships/other funds are obtained), even though they don’t provide the extra things other universities do(sports, clubs, gen. eds, different courses outside of a major, travel abroad)?
I realize this question is more up to my own decision, but having never dealt with debt(30-40k is before eating, but for all 3 years) or credit dues, or living and providing completely for myself(CA is a LONG way away from home), I figured I’d ask people who already have a foot in the door of the office I wish to work in one day. Thank you all in advance.
