GW Law vs. USC vs. CU

Postby porterjd » Thu Apr 22, 2010 7:56 pm

It's getting down to the wire and I have about 8 days before my first seat deposit is due. Kind of leaning towards GW but think I might like to live in california.

Here's the cost of attendance for each school from scholarships/grants:

GW: 55,000

USC: 60,000

CU: 35,000

I was a chemistry and biochemistry double major as an undergrad so I'm pretty well set up for IP law which GW definitely seems to have the edge in.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I went to USC's admitted student day last week and left after lunch unimpressed. The location sucks and surprisingly the facilities were pretty depressing. I'm heading to GW this weekend, so I'll let you know what I think. USC's a fantastic school if you want to end up in southern California. Their network is ridiculous. Where do you want to end up?

Are you even serious about going to CU? Why include it? I don't know much about the differences between USC and GW, but CU is much more of a regional school than either of those. You'd have to really want to be in Colorado or be trying to limit debt.

Oh, USC. Better school in an easier market.

um, if you want to live in CA then you should prob go to a school that can get you a job in CA. hence, USC beats out GW by a long-shot.
