Imagine you had the option of going to a top state university on a full ride or a prestigious Ivy League for about $20,000 a year. Would it be a hard decision? What would you choose?
Four years ago, Becca Arbacher had to make that decision. She chose Columbia in New York City over the University of Michigan.
And she's glad she did.
"Being at Columbia has offered me some really incredible opportunities that I wouldn't have otherwise," says Arbacher. "It's kind of impossible for me to guess what my experience would have been like at Michigan."
