Virginia sticker vs GW with $$

Postby W8tnsee » Tue Jan 11, 2011 5:13 pm

I am interested in health law. Washington is expensive to live, but I would end up with no debt. Virginia would put me up to my eyeballs. What do you guys think?

No debt at GW? You already have $75k saved for living expenses?

If it truly is GW with no debt (their 3 year total CoA is $210k) and no strings on your scholarship, then take GW.

I love UVA to death and I know people who are going into Health Law here...but there's no question that if I had a full scholly at GW is a powerful thing. I probably would have taken it. The fact that UVA isn't giving you any money at all just makes it a tad easier.

UVA was top of my list, but GW surprised me. It is hard to turn down. I am from an SEC school so big school in a big city is a little intimidating. Guess I will leave my car at home.

No strings on the scholarship and I have some saved. Living expenses will definately be tight, but I think I can get close with some small loans.
