GW Scholly $$ vs. GULC at Sticker???

Postby seb15 » Fri Apr 27, 2012 5:25 pm

I'd like to hear the community's opinion on my dilemma.

I have a $90k offer from GW Law for three years, but GULC has offered nothing to date.

I love the idea of doing law school in DC, so I'm stoked on my options, but I don't know which to take.

They are both great schools, but G'town is a bit better recognized nationally.

On the other hand, GULC is a huge school, which can make it tougher to get a job coming out.

Any advice? Thanks.

Many many people have a similar dilemma as yours. (T30 with $$ vs GULC Sticker).

It comes down to what's in your heart. Follow your heart. I met a girl at my ASW that was choosing between my T30 with $$ and GULC. I told her, frankly, I would take the money. But thats just me.

I think its really importaint that you do everything you can to negotiate your scholly with GULC.

What are your career goals? Where do you want to end up?

I am aiming to be in International Law or Public Policy. Both schools are excellent for public policy and government sector jobs, though GULC is stronger in international. Also, it is likely that at GULC I may be accepted into the Global Law Scholars program.

Also, I will likely end up back in SoCal after all is said in done, but working in government for a few years would be awesome.
