HELP With Decision

Postby hopefulsplitter1 » Mon Jan 17, 2011 3:47 am

Ok, so far I've only heard back from the schools in the middle of my list.

UGA-in state tuition
IU-120k
Wake-20k/year (Assuming based on stats)
Illinois-25k/year

I've also applied to Emory, GW, Fordham, Cardozo, USC, UCLA, St. Johns, and Bama.

Based on stats, im borderline at the first 3, in at cardozo, usc, ucla are reaches and in with pretty good money at the last two

I have family in Ny so COL there would be close to zero and id like to stay in NY but I've heard its almost impossible outside the t14 to get a job in NY

I was wondering what kind of job prospects you guys think id find at IU or Illinois, Is there any way i could move back east with those degrees.

And would St. John's with full scholly be the best route to take since im really debt averse.

The poll is a little unclear. Are these numbers how much of a scholarship you've been offerred or how much you'd have to pay?

Take a full scholly at cardozo (or 3/4, whatever they give you) over a full scholly from st johns anyday.
