Syracuse vs Penn State vs OSU

Postby trayball23 » Tue Mar 29, 2011 12:16 pm

Looking for some opinions on three of my top choices.. I am going to OCS this summer and I am committed to Marine JAG program so location is not really a big thing... I live in Upstate NY so syracuse is the closest and the cheapest with scholly 33,000 yr, PSU w 20,000 yr and OSU at sticker... any feed back about the schools in general or opinions would be helpful

Any chance you could get in-state at Penn St or OSU?

In-state tuition is really easy to get at OSU for 2L and 3L. That's about all the advice I can offer though.

Penn State does not have in-state tuition.

what would make this decision a lot easier would be a crystal ball that lets me see US news rankings for next 10 yrs and see if PEnn state will go up as much as some people predict it will.

tell him you are going to law school and will be willing to help them out as best you can- or will help get them in touch with good lawyers who will take the case without leaking it to the press.

im not in JAG yet... I applied to the PLC law program for Marines. Marines are only branch who will guarantee you a spot for law before law school. If I get through OCS law school the bar and basic school and military justice school I am guaranteed a JAG spot

Got it. When I visited I talked with a 3l that got into army and marine jag. He said there are a few professors that did jag once upon a time as well. So syracuse seems to have good resources for jag.

If you have a job lined up minimize your debt. That said, Columbus is awesome.
