1. Knowing my goals, at what scholly amount would gwu outweigh minn at 84k?
2. At what scholly amount is gwu worth the price?
You do realize that the "unreal advice" you got was the best advice ITT don't you? And that just because you don't want to hear it doesn't make it any less real?
LOL so presumptious.. that's not the "unreal advice" I was talking about breh. I meant the ppl that just said idiot or retard. I was asking the people that said don't go at that price to either. Hence the nature of the questions. Read them again and you'll see that it was the people with dissenting opinions that I was actually asking for further advice
edit: in addition to asking those like sinf and noodley who said Minn outweighs GW
for a moment I thought this was my post.
OP we are in the similar situation now, I got in UMN with full ride, GW give me 30k per year. so now is COA : UMN 55k vs GW 135 k
I have low GPA too, slight difference is I have both master and bachelor at Engineering, so pretty sure I will do IP law in the future.
I understand what you are saying here. I think Minneapolis is a lovely city except for the cold, and UMN is a great school. But I like DC , NY more and hope I can get big law job (yeah, I know many people would say it is a hard goal to reach anyway).
I was talking to my friend who is a partner at a big DC law firm about my options now. This what he told me " Jing, if I were on your shoes now I will choose GW, because I know I could work very hard and get top of my class and pay off my debt. But about you, you are a huge slacker as I know, so you probably should go to UMN, it is too risky to take that huge debt from GW under such an uncertain economy.'
Let me know if you make your decision. Good luck!
