Depaul $$ or JM $$$$?

Postby lsacblowme » Thu Mar 04, 2010 8:06 pm

Depaul requires I maintain a 3.2, and JM requires I remain in the top 1/3rd of my class. Can I negotiate or is that set in stone?

Not only can you negotiate that, I would strongly suggest you do so. You don't want tens of thousands of possible debt to rest on the shoulders of one test.

You may be able to negotiate the top 1/3 with JM, but I am doubtful you will be able to change any amount or stipulations with Depaul. The two arent exactly peer schools. So my answer is different from the previous poster: Probably not. That being said, I would choose Depaul.

Try to negotiate with DePaul. Regardless of the outcome, choose DePaul.

if you can get off of the top 1/3 requirement go to JM i know depaul is the better school but they will both be placing poorly ITE so definitely go for the free JD

Try to negotiate. If you fail, still go to DePaul. JM SUCKS.
