Is it crazy that I'm still hesitant? I have no money saved, so I'd have to take out what, like 60k cover cost of living? Is that worth it for WUSTL?
Also had another meeting with the car dealership guy, that seems like a pretty sure thing but I'd be probably making closer to 60-80k after the training period, not six figures.
What do I do?
Trollolololol WUSTL is so blatant.
You really think you'd make that at a car dealership? Everyone would be trying to work at dealerships if that was the case: $70K/year is more than most entry level professional positions, i.e. actuaries, paralegals, accountants, consultants, personal bankers, teachers, ect. I would take that offer with a fair degree of skepticism, but then again, you would know since you're the one there.
WUSTL is definitely worth it with a full ride if you want to be an attorney. Its actually worth it for upwards of $100K IMO. However, no one can predict whether WUSTL will maintain this scholarship pattern in future years, so if the job opportunity is real, I would probably take it, save all the earnings and reapply. But washu is a great school.
