help me decide!!!

Postby caligulove » Tue Jan 25, 2011 2:10 pm

so here's what I have to choose from so far:
key: $$$ = above 50% tuiton
$$ = around 50% tuiton
McGeorge: $$$
USD: $$
John Marshall chicago: full ride
Penn State: $$$
Hofstra: $$$

I'm still waiting to hear from other schools in terms of money but this is what I have to deal with now. I won't be disclosing my numbers for the sake of anonymity, I just want objective opinions on the schools and the money they've given me.

With those schools it depends entirely on where you want to work.

I'd need to know your regional preference and what you want to do but if I HAD to choose one of those options I like Penn State with more than 50% scholly.

my regional preference is California, sorry should have included that. What is giving me second thoughts about USD is the coa and the fact that they aren't really known for anything but tax law. That said I'd love to live in San Diego.

Unless you have amazing ties....your parents have their own firm....you must attend one of the California schools--the other schools will get you next to nothing in California.

Well, if you are set on SoCal, USD seems like the obvious choice. All these schools are completely regional.

The only one of those schools I would go to ITE is Penn State.

It has the least competition. I'd say your best choices are probably McGeorge or Penn State from a financial perspective.

If you want SoCal, the obvious choice is USD. If you want CA in general, McGeorge is probably better for finding a job though it will really only place you Sacramento and possibly the Bay Area.

SoCal is nice but really anywhere warm is nice. I've been in Canada for 6 years and cannot take another winter. But I don't want to dig myself into a hole for some sunshine.

that's what I was leaning towards, but I don't want to rush into anything...
