I am divided in a choice I need to make... I am employed in a program that requires graduate school. My employer will outright pay, with no cap for any school. Since there is no cap, I'm thinking I should shoot for some really good schools. What are your opinions on, 1) Trying to get into top-10 schools: Stanford, Geogia Tech 2) Continuing graduate school in a top 10% state school. (very close, I could meet up with the professors, TA's, etc..) opinions?
