Tennessee v. hold out for Richmond or Maryland

Postby isaiah535 » Tue Jun 12, 2012 4:13 pm

In at Tennessee (OOS but with a scholarship that brings it down to about $20k/yr). Waitlisted at Richmond and Maryland. No preference on location. Are these worth waiting for or should I just go with UT?

Location of school or location of your career? LST says that about 3/4 of UT grads ended up practicing in TN — is that okay with you?

No real preference for location of career but if the other two gave me more flexibility then I think they'd be worth considering.

They wouldnt. Also, in general, attending a T2 in a state with no ties is a bad idea. Where are your ties, OP?

Are you southern? conservative? getting a job out of a state school like UTK is going to come down to networking. if you can fit in the ol boys and want to work in TN, this is a really good school
