BU (no $$) vs William&Mary (8k)

Postby helloworld725 » Sat Apr 21, 2012 8:30 pm

I visited both schools last week and loved them, but BU is definitely my top choice. The only thing holding me back is the lack of scholarship money (I will be submitting other offers this week to try to negotiate). Anyone have thoughts on whether BU is worth it at sticker or anything regarding employment prospects at either school?

Anything is helpful :)

BU no $ is tough to swallow. Are you instate at WM? Where do you want to work? WM, while struggling to place recently, is a good school for a good price if you're in-state.

BU negotiates, but you need to say it like: "I will go here if you get it closer to this" Also, 8K is...probably something they can match.
