Go for it. Pay no attention the grad school haters on here.

I'm sure you can get enough bursaries/aid to decrease the costs to something manageable.

Dear Colonel Smoothie,

Computer science PhD at UIUC has your name written all over it. If you decide on a masters instead, tuition is only 16k a year if you are in state one year before applying. Pretty good for a top 5 program.

Tuition for the masters degree is usually "free" if you get accepted to the PhD program though. I guess if you want to spend 32k you could go that route as well.

Apart from the money, think of how much better you'll be for going to a top 5 program! You'd instantly be better than anyone at a 6+ program.

Getting accepted into UIUC computer science PhD is a little different than getting a bum**** physics degree from a no name school. UIUC computer science is really really good.

So yes, masters is free, if you get in the PhD program.
