This is a good point -- is it worth it to accept an offer without funding? I decided to accept a non-funded position at a school (over a fully funded position at another school) because of a few things -- faculty, location, class offerings, and the community. You'll be living in a city for a few years, living, working, and writing. It's important to be in a place where you feel as if you'll be happy and productive, right? I say if it's reasonable, let's say the price of a new Honda Accord, then a little debt is not the end of the world. It comes down to your gut. What's right for me won't be right for you.

Of course, three years from now, I may entirely regret this decision, but let's hope not.
