GWU vs. ND vs. U of MN ($) vs. IUB ($$$)

Postby Mr. December » Fri Mar 18, 2011 1:58 am

Here's where I stand:

Accepted to George Washington University with no money.
Accepted to Notre Dame with no money.
Accepted to the University of Minnesota with a $20,000 annual scholarship.
Accepted to Indiana University Bloomington with a full ride.

My dream job would be working in D.C. as legal counsel for the Department of Justice or the House/Senate, but I'm wondering whether going somewhere like GWU and accumulating that debt would be worth it just to get a regional advantage. I hear graduating in the top 10% of your class offers more national mobility.

If you want DC, you have to go to G-Dub, however it is going to be by far the most expensive option b/c COL in DC is ridiculous. Also, don't count on being top 15% of your class, if you are top 15% at any of these schools, more ND and GW than the other two you can work anywhere you want, just realize it is extremely difficult to do so, so don't count on it.

Basically if you want DC, go to GW. Top third and you can get a solid job in DC, just know what you are getting yourself into, debt wise.
