Syracuse vs. West Virginia

Postby kdl13 » Fri Feb 03, 2012 11:05 am

Of the schools I've heard back from, these are the two im most likely to attend. Thoughts on which one is better from peanut gallery?

scholarship money? where do you want to work. if it's anywhere outside of WV then don't go to WVU. if you don't have a fullride to syracuse, don't go there. retake

It's really too bad this rivalry will be ending as both teams exit the Big East.

Then again, when did anyone really give a shit about the Big East?

Off topic, and I don't mean to derail this thread, but this really broke my heart. All of the Big East rivalries are going to die. SU/WV, SU/GTown, SU/UConn. It's going to be awful.

Anyway, back on topic, SU is horrendously over-priced for the prospects it has. Like the poster above said, you need a large scholarship AND a desire to stay in CNY. I don't know much about WVU, but it is much cheaper. You would still need to want to stay in WVU though, as I don't see that school as having much portability.

If you are not from WV do not go to WV. You are an outsider and hiring partners will not like that. Cuse is overpriced and most likely not worth it either.

This isn't a very good statistical model, but I worked in student loan collections and most of the lawyers in default for their student loans seemed to come from Syracuse. Also, both of those places suck in the winter. If I was going to go to a law school that bad, I would at least go to the University of Hawaii.

It was sobering. Luckily, I have a sugar mama, so I'll be alright.
