OSU(in-state tuition) vs GMU (Sticker)

Postby Pygmaeus » Wed Mar 21, 2012 2:54 pm

I’m accepted at CSU, OSU, GMU, Loyola – Chicago, and DU. My GPA is 3.14 and LSAT is 166 with a BS in Accounting and a BS in Finance. I have 2.5 years of work experience as a corporate accountant at a large company, and I plan on taking the CPA exams during this summer and next summer. I’m interested in tax law, entrepreneurial/small business law, technology law, and possibly a biglaw job.

Currently, I’m leaning towards OSU, because it has programs (Tax and entrepreneurship) I am interested in and I will be closer to family and friends. I am interested in GMU, because of it’s location and focus on economics and technology law and access to a bigger market.
I’d like some input before I make a decision.

Either in the midwest like Columbus, Cleveland, or Chicago, or if the opportunity presented itself then a bigger east coast market. I'm not too picky.

Well, since it seems you are from Ohio and would like to practice there (for the most part), I'd suggest OSU.

Without knowing the COA for you at those schools, it is hard to say otherwise.
