Hey everybody, I'm a high school senior about to apply to college and major in some science (anything from biochemistry to physics to math). Princeton University is my first choice, but it's going to be expensive for my family and me, especially considering I will most likely go to grad school (probably med school). Several people have told me that there really isn't a reason to go to an ivy for undergrad, that grad school is more important. This seems somewhat true, but I really like the atmosphere at Princeton. Going to say Mississippi State (I live in MS) just isn't as challenging as Princeton, and I want to be challenged and thrown out of my comfort zone. I also really like this program at Princeton: http://www.princeton.edu/integratedscience/. So what do you guys think? Is it really worth it to go to Princeton? Or should I just learn the same stuff at a cheaper university and focus on grad school?
