Death Match: Emory v. Wake. Scholarships included

Postby SrLaw » Wed Mar 09, 2011 9:59 pm

I would rather practice in ATL than NC, however, I would rather be in the Mid Atlantic than the SE.

Wake offered me $22K p/y which makes COA - 14K + COL

Emory offered me $$15K p/y which makes COA - 25K + COL.


Which would you choose?

Please share any reasoning if you have any.

Emory. I'd pay 33k more for Emory.


P.S. I love that Deathmatches are catching on, but I hate that you correctly used two words instead of my made up one word version.

I vote Emory since you would rather practice in ATL. In addition, Emory has more prestige so it may open up a few more options (albeit small) outside of GA.

11k difference isn't a big deal. Pick Emory. Atl is the home market and there's more of a possibility to land in the Mid-Atlantic from Emory versus Wake. Not even close. This was a weak death match :? More like a rerun episode of American Gladiators.

Looking for more thoughts on this.

Emory will be around 45K p/y more expensive in tuition alone and around 60K more expensive overall.

Voted for Wake without reading the post. Can I change it to Emory?

You like Atlanta, Emory is a better school, only slightly more expensive, sounds like a no-brainer.
