GMU (in-state)/W&L$

Postby klussy » Mon Apr 05, 2010 10:03 am

I only have a vague idea of what I'd like to do. Would love a job with the state dept. but I have heard those jobs are super competitive-open only to upper t-14. Is this true? Or could mason or W&L get me in the door?

Failing that, like everyone else, I'd be looking for the best paying firm job I could get. How does the employment of these two schools stack up?

I like W&L's atmosphere much better. The honor code, the small community, it all suits me. I know it would be virtually stress free studying in Lexington, compared to staying in the DC area, forking up rent $$ and commuting. Although, lack of diversity is a minor drawback.

Mason is in state, but housing in a safe, reasonably close area could be up to 2,000/mo. plus utilities.

Also, I went to Mason UG. Some people say it would be better to change up the resume, but that's not really a big deal at all to me. I'm just concerned with employment: salaries, internships, and a shot at that state dept. dream (which I don't think is possible from where I stand, but I want to hear your opinions).
