Validate my Decision

Postby TTH » Fri Mar 19, 2010 10:44 am

I'm pretty well locked into Ohio State at this point, and I'm mainly wondering if you would have made the same decision. Also, does anyone see any room to bargain more money anywhere? Interested to hear your thoughts.

Me: White male, 3.22/166, two years quality WE, some extra-curriculars in UG, career goal: BIGOHIOLAW in Columbus or Cincinnati, but not Cleveland.

COA w/ COL, minus Scholarship
Ohio State (In-State): $103,218
IUB: $116,604
UGA: $106,860
Cincy: $88,164

You know the answer to this question. Go treat yourself to an egg salad sandwich at Surly Girl; they're fantastic.

Sure Cincy is cheaper. And I have a friend who goes there and likes it. But OSU is a better school, and will have the most job opportunities if you want to stay in Ohio. I think you made the right decision. And hey, my best friend is going to be at OSU next year too!

If it makes any difference I'm from California and had no idea OSU had a law school until I read this. UGA would be my preference!

If you want to work in Ohio, OSU is the right school and you'd be coming out with extremely little debt.

Seriously, OSU seems like a solid choice given your options. Good luck next year!

Wow, sounds very similar to the decision I had to make. I chose IUB, though, but that's because I feel their degree travels better and I don't want to be stuck where I go to law school.

Oh and I feel the same way about people killing themselves as I do on ordering desert.

Sure it might not be the healthy thing to do, but if you really have to think hard about it you should just do it.
