American or George Mason ($) ?

Postby DCguy7 » Tue Jul 31, 2012 7:50 pm

I have been accepted into both programs and I'm trying to figure out soon which school to attend. I have a great job in DC and will likely go to either school part-time. I would appreciate any advice about which one of these schools to attend, especially from people living in the DC area. Thanks in advance.

I was accepted to both and both sets of students said that it comes down to politics. American leans far left and G. Mason leans to the right. If you want far left, go to American, if you want right go to G. Mason.

Personally, I liked American better.

What are you trying to get out of this JD?

Neither school will give you great employment options post graduation.

Pretty much this. Need more info, including your current goals, your scholarship totals, and your debt at graduation. These may be decent options for you if you have a good job and can go part time, but in general, neither one is a very good investment. What are you looking to do with this law degree? Why are you going to law school at all?

Mason is cheaper with better employment prospects.
