UCLA vs GWU?

Postby jennigun » Fri May 24, 2013 10:21 am

UCLA $30,000 per year, or GWU $40,000 per year? Not sure what type of law I want to practice - potentially international or public interest law, but I really have no idea. I was set on GW and the email from UCLA came today - any advice?

In order to receive the best feedback in this forum, please provide as much of the following information in your original post as possible:

-The schools you are considering
-The total Cost of Attendance (COA) of each. COA = cost of tuition + fees + books + cost of living (COL) + accumulated interest - scholarships. Here is a helpful calculator.
-How you will be financing your COA, i.e. loans, family, or savings
-Where you are from and where you want to work, and other places where you have significant ties (if any)
-Your general career goals
-Your LSAT/GPA numbers
-How many times you have taken the LSAT

I thought in a previous thread, OP was accepted to Stanford. Did you withdraw? (please note sarcasm)

From an old post, OP has a 3.8 and a 168. Retake for Cal, girl.

please refine this and come back with a more specific goal

also where do you want to practice? UCLA is a pretty regional school. If you want to work in LA, I would go there. If you want DC or NYC, then GWU is the better choice.

168/3.8? What were your other choices? You must have broken into T14 but my guess is at sticker?
