Agree with 3and2. If you can swing it without going into major debt, I’d go with the best school without any reservations. It’s true that in the end, it’s not just about the school but the kid and what he achieves/how hard he works. But that school name will open up doors. I’ve seen it over and over again in my own life, career. And having the athletics on top of it is also a huge door opener.
