SLU vs BU vs Loyola

Postby bdfw2bam » Thu Mar 07, 2013 6:46 pm

So the only reason I'm not immediately considering BU is because Loyola and SLU both offered me pretty nice scholarships. Another factor is that I want to do healthcare law and SLU is ranked #1 in healthcare law. Overall, I think BU would be the best school, but I don't know if its worth the debt I'd have to take out. Any advice?

SLU - 13/272 in big firms
Loyola - 23/274
BU - 57/273

Think hard about going at all, and even harder about Ruxin's link.

What exactly are your offers? what are the stipulations on the scholarships? What is the total cost of attendance of each option (Cost of living plus cost of attendance)?

Loyola in CA or Chi?

Specially rankings are a flame. Despite being able to land my sister, My brother-in-law was on LR and was at the top of his class at SLU, and still took a job in landscaping after graduating. Are you from MO? Attending a TTT in region you are not from is not a good move.

Wow I thought I'd seen everything. That's horrible.

None. BU would be alright with a sizeable scholarship. Wouldn't go to SLU or Loyola without full ride or close to it, AND ties.

If your passion is healthcare, you might want to look at different ways to break into the field. Healthcare admin, nursing, medicine, social work, etc. all have better prospects within the healthcare field.
