Definitely go to the school you want. You'll be much happier.
Nice job on completing your Roth, and boosting your savings. Keep it up, Leila. :)

Congratulations!

Not sure about your field but perhaps your working as a full-time assistant with a prof during the summers could increase your savings?

If you don't mind me giving your unsolicited advice, when my husband and I moved to his grad school, we ended up getting a lot of things for free when people moved out of their apartments/dors. They were in AWESOME shape, even though much of it was Ikea or similar.

The week during the move-out and the week after, the place was completely full of really new things. So if you're patient, maybe you can pick up some items like that?

I am overseas now but I always wanted to work with a non-profit that needed this type of stuff and just go around picking it up.

All I can say is don't let your money stress detract from your learning/educational experience. If you are too stressed to get everything out of this program that you should be, then that is the biggest waste of money. I would frame it as, as long as I graduate with debt of 20K or less, it was worth it to me. Do what you need to keep it below that level but don't let the cart come before the horse.

Never mind. This forum is not what it used to be.

personally, I would take the difference from your Roth. Without judging what you are actually doing, the roth will be most likely be tax and penalty free b/c of the ordering rules for non-qualified distributions, direct contributions come out first, tax and penalty free. You most likely have $4400 in basis. I would try and soften this blow by hustling as much work as you can, as you'll be loosing an opportunity more than money.

I'm not an advocate of hoping someone dies (or complicated family matters being sorted out) for my financial plan to work out. But, that is just me....
