comment Do I need to go to a big-name university?
I think the phrase "risk of tremendous debt" is a bit of a fallacy. You are not gambling here, you can either choose to take on debt or choose not to. The only risk is whether or not you will be able to pay it off. I would consider few academic endeavors worth over a hundred thousand dollars in debt, but taking on debt in order to invest in a quality education can be worth it.
