BC v. UGA

Postby droges » Fri Apr 15, 2011 5:23 pm

UGA- Tuition would be 10k a year
BC- Sticker (as of now, still in process of negotiating)

Any thoughts? I have my own opinions but I would like some outside input. I would like to be in the Northeast/ Mid-Atlantic after graduation so that would obviously lead me to choose BC but I'm concerned about debt if I dont receive any money. Are the risk and better employment stats worth the added debt?

why is UGA an option if you want the northeast? Its all about how comfortable you are with risk - you dont get big law have fun paying off whatever ungodly number BC at sticker is. UGA you probably need to be top 25%ish to be competitive for biglaw, but the kicker is that if you miss that you could pay off the debt in less than half the time.

I would like the Northeast/ Mid Atlantic but if it doesnt happen I will be fine with it, it is just the preferred geographic location. I am just trying to weigh debt versus employment. Obviously, at UGA you need to do extremely well to comete for biglaw, but what about BC? Is it top 40-50% that will get you similar opportunities?
Thanks
