Still trying to decide

Postby dudders » Wed Apr 14, 2010 10:27 am

I'm a splitter and my options are above. I got in to plenty of schools but my 3.4 GPA screwed me on $ at all of them. At this point I'm leaning basically between GW and W&M, it's just tough to say if going to GW is worth an extra 50+k of debt.

I grew up in Southern California, have lived in Colorado for the 3 years since undergrad, and I'm relatively open as to where I want to practice. I don't know that I want to stay in the Mountain West for the rest of my life though, which is a knock against CU. I'm interested in policy/government/PI work.

I'd go with W&M. I don't think GWU is worth the extra $50K -- both GWU and W&M are great schools.

W&M - second cheapest to CU.

IMO GWU is worth the extra 50k, but if you withdraw that is better for me as I ride out the WL :D

GW by a mile if you really want to do IP or policy/government work.
