I should have made more clear that these are my figures instead of theirs. Based on what I can find for apartments, and how I don't eat but a few times a week, and so forth. Schools hugely overstate the cost of living versus what it actually costs me
to live in real life.

No one really pays "sticker" at UGa, since in-state is <$15k and everyone is in-state for a majority of their time spent there. I wouldn't consider in-state to be "sticker" at Mason either... it's only $22k a year. Basically it's like a $60,000 scholarship at Mason for being in-state (versus a similarly ranked private school) and even more at Georgia whether one is in-state or not. So what I'm saying I guess is that no one pays OOS sticker at Georgia and as a VA resident I wouldn't at Mason either.

I suppose I'll have to see how well Mason grads did in the Great Recession. As of when the economy was still in-tact, GMU Law grades made a reported* median of $150,000 starting most years and virtually all of them were going into the DC market. Speaking of which, your sentence above was kinda strange... nearly all GMU grads go into the DC market, so what you really meant was "George Mason for employment is gonna be tough". Ha? Oh, ye TLS and your "only T14s get employed" mantra.*We all know reported medians are a bit higher than actual medians, however.
