It was about minimizing the 1.5 to 2 years extra tuition / time until graduating.

I would expect that even with scholarships that the local state school will be cheaper. Since DH works there, I assume that living at home is now on the table and is much, much cheaper than living and eating on campus.

The kiddo will be better well rounded for taking the additional general education classes and be more mature upon graduation.

It is easier to make this change now rather than in ten years.
