I have been accepted into USC and San Diego State's MSW programs. Now I am having trouble deciding where I should attend.

Does where you got your MSW make a difference when it comes to getting hired & long term salary?

USC is a prestigious school, but it is extremely expensive and I'm not sure I can afford to pay back between $60,000 - $82,000 of student loans.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

USC has a better reputation, and a more personal approach to helping their students reach their potential. SDSU is a large school, where many of the professors seem to care little about their students, and actully miss many lectures/class periods. As far as advising goes, there is none. Haveing said this, it does cost a lot more to attend SC, but as they say "you get what you pay for" and in this case it is true.
