W&L (FT full tuition) vs. Maryland (PT in-state)

Postby SpencerPratt » Tue Jul 12, 2011 10:37 am

Hey guys, I posted this in the transfer forum, but thought I'd post here as well. I'm transferring back home to the DC area and have gotten into UMD PT program (went to my old school's PT program) and W&L's full time program (though I'd probably need an extra semester to work out transfer credits since I'm studying abroad for only 5 credits).

I want to practice in either Maryland (Montgomery County) or DC (or NOVA I guess, but that'd be 3rd). For those suggesting I may only find work in Charlottesville/Richmond or Baltimore, I'd choose Baltimore. I'd also have free rent in Maryland if I lived at home.

I know W&L is ranked higher and has a more prestigious reputation, but Maryland would be plenty cheaper due to in-state plus no housing costs.

Which has a better reputation in DC? Does MD place well into the Maryland (DC) suburbs?

Still waiting on GW and Gtown FWIW.

Maryland because it fits your location desires better

Go with Maryland as long as the commute from parents to Baltimore isn't bad.

Thanks for the responses.

Could stay in Columbia for free. 20 minute commute or so?
