Temple Instate (Sticker) v. American (Sticker)

Postby hopelesslyconfused » Sat Apr 09, 2011 2:32 pm

Okay.. so I am in a bit of a dilemma. ...cost vs location.
Both are for the PT program. Temple is only 14k a year, American is 35k a year.


I am interested in pursuing work in the DC market, and want to get the hell out of Philadelphia once I finish law school if i was to go to Temple.
What do i do?

I love both of these schools and would be very happy at either, but I am not sure if half the debt is worth the risk of not finding a job outside of the city.

If you want to "get the hell out of Philadelphia" once you finish law school, Temple is a poor choice. American is also a poor choice, because its current placement power is not worth its cost.

I would advise retaking.
