William & Mary, George Washington, or Vanderbilt?

Postby mitz1489 » Sun Jan 30, 2011 3:50 pm

I want to go into International Human Rights law.

W&M gave me $10,000 a year, so I would have to pay $20,000 for tuition yearly.

Didn't get any scholarships from GW or Vandy.

Any advice would be great! :)

I am probably gonna be making the same decision! I got $18,000 from W&M and nothing from GW and I haven't gotten into Vandy yet but I think I will... I'm so conflicted because having less debt is important to me but I love the other 2 schools

Vandy places MUCH better than any of the other schools listed. No debate.

I make take a full ride at a lower school (T50ish) over sticker at Vandy, but if those are your options then Vandy all the way.

+1 Unless you had some other particular reason for wanting to attend one of the other schools such as family location that you consider to be an important factor in your decision process IMO.

Do you mean in terms of job placement after graduation? Because in terms of ranking, its only three spots better than GW.

Vanderbilt. Plus, like others have said, Vandy hasn't released scholarship information yet.

I'd also do Vandy, but if you want I guess you can try to negotiate for a scholarship at GW or for more money at W&M?

Mitz, if you don't mind me asking, what are your stats? Can you expect scholarship money at Vanderbilt? (As other people pointed out, Vanderbilt hasn't released scholarship info yet.)

On another note, the main reason to go to Vanderbilt over one of the other schools is job placement. Statistically speaking, Vanderbilt offers superior opportunities.

I'll probably end up at GW or BU, but its simple why anyone would choose vandy over those other places w/o scholarship. JOB PROSPECTS.

You may receive a scholarship award from Vanderbilt. Visit all three schools & if still uncertain, then Vanderbilt may be your best choice based on comparative placement.

P.S. Last year Vanderbilt awarded $70,000 to an URM with a 156 & $45,000 to an URM with a 155 LSAT & 3.46 GPA according to lawschoolnumbers.com Applications to most law schools are down significantly this year which suggests that you may do well with respect to scholarship money. As a URM acceptee to Vanderbilt, as well as Wm. & Mary, you should expect significant scholarship money, in my opinion.
