UT or Davis or U of Illinois HELP!!!

Postby Samdann » Mon Apr 11, 2011 4:07 pm

HELP! Univ of Tx offered NO $$, but it's the best ranked of the schools. UC Davis offered $20 thou/"possibly" renewable ea. year, and U of I offered $ 60,000 total. Long term, I would prefer to live in Ca, but would like to have the option of working in DC at least as an intern-any suggestions? (from AZ, hate the cold weather!) :rollp.s. waitlisted at UCLA and USC>should I hang on to those????

If you want work in CA, go to UCD.

DC out of all these schools is going to be next to impossible so don't let that cloud your judgment.

As someone who did his undergrad at Illinois, I would advise against you going there. I'd go to UT as it has a great reputation nationwide. You shouldn't turn schools like that down, period.

This.

Mick's and Alyosha's advice is pretty bad due to cost of Texas and desire to work in CA.

Illinois undergrad is awesome. But Texas is a better deal with only 60K from UIUC.

"possibly renewable" sounds like a bad idea.

Good call, missed that part. OP, what does that mean.

How exactly do you determine this? I was taking a look at the firms that attended UTs Fall OCI and there are a ton of firms from DC: --LinkRemoved--. I'm not questioning your conclusion, but I'm curious what's the best resource to read for understanding geographic job prospects.

If UCLA or USC does happen I'd take them at sticker over all the options.
