USD $$$ or GULC sticker

Postby FlanAl » Mon Mar 28, 2011 12:10 am

So my cycle has been kind of a bummer so far (in that I got rejected from my top 2 choices and haven't heard anything from my other favorites) and my two best options are above (other two options are UIUC and W&L). GULC accepted me off their special waitlist so I'm not expecting any cash (I was only on it for two weeks so maybe it was a weird yp?). Basically with total COA USD will cost me 80k over the three years and gtown will be 210k. Not quite sure if I'm biglaw or bust but would like to have that option and would like to have it in the sd market.

Any thoughts would be very appreciated!

also I am still waiting on a lot of schools but I kinda get the feeling that it will come down to this so I want to start thinking about it as early as possible.

USD should be out. Terrible employment prospects. Unless you are graduating from there with no debt its not a great option. GULC on the other hand is a great school.

Even with the bashing that GULC continuosly endures on TLS, I would say go to GULC. Employment prospects for USD are pretty horrible.

I can probably cut the price of USD down quite a bit by living at home but yeah the employment was like 60% at graduation last year? Just having a hard time with GULC because of all the TLS bashing and their relatively lackluster open house.
