Southwestern Vs. USD

Postby rungo21 » Fri Jul 15, 2011 5:35 am

Hey, I'm from LA and I have been set on going to Southwestern. I recently got in off the waitlist at San Diego, which is mid tier 2, as opposed to SW's dreaded TTT status. However, I very much so want to work in LA, and USD's placement numbers show very few graduates ending up back in LA. I also have some $ from SW, though I am not too concerned about tuition.

That being said, would attending USD be a wise choice over SW? Again, I do wish to work in LA, though if I can find a decent job in San Diego I guess I would be okay with ending up in SD... I know that USD is the best school in the SD region, so...

What are your opinions TLS?

What percentage of tuition would you be paying at SW?

Why are you not concerned about tuition costs? Is someone paying your way? Do you have a guaranteed job waiting for you after graduation?
