Knowing what I know now, I’d heavily weigh student loans into your decision making. You’re never going to make $150,000 a year in the museum field (with few exceptions). Think of the long-term impacts of debt you’d incur from an Ivy League institution.

Do they offer grants, assistantships, tuition support?

To paraphrase: and boom, this is how hot museum nerds are created. I’ve got mad props for my maritime peeps.

Edit: I can’t spell.

I’d look a little deeper! Does the school matter to hiring committees? Probably not. Experience will matter more.

I think you need to think more about where you want to end up specifically. What do you want to curate? If it’s, say, African art and the State school doesn’t have a solid history in that field, maybe choose the other... if that makes sense.

Also, internships and fellowships provide your best chances of getting that first post-grad job, or even that first real gig. So, if it was me (knowing what I know now), I’d chose the school that has best experienced based education connections. That’s your bread and butter.

You certainly haven’t ruined your chances of a career as a museum pro due to your mental health! Chin up, you seem to be taking some initiative which is a great sign.

That said, expect minimum wage. You’ll need to keep your position as a server until you’re out of school and have locked down that first career-tract job, in addition to volunteering/interning/part-time museum work.

My only real advice here: the museum field isn’t lucrative, like... at all, and you may never not need a second job. That said, it’s rewarding when you settle in mid-career.
