  1. I went to high school in the Seattle area, and most kids who moved on to college chose either UW or Wash State. I desperately wanted to go out of state to have “the true college experience” and hoped to attend a UC school (having been born in SoCal) but we couldn’t afford the ridiculous out of state tuition and any of essays help. I was able to go to Arizona State out of state for less than UW in state and although the admissions standards are much lower, I chose highly ranked programs within the school and haven’t had it held against me since. I think that it’s important to remember that college is mostly about the experience (unless you are pre-med or something equally specialized) and you get in what you put out. It’s not a given your life will be better just because you paid ridiculous sums of money just to have a diploma from an expensive school.
