ASU v. Florida v. Utah v. BYU

Postby Jetsetter » Thu Jul 14, 2011 5:09 pm

Spent 1L at DePaul hated living in Chicago so I applied to transfer to 4 schools and I got in to 3 of them waiting on BYU my 1st choice. Never expected that so now I am trying to decide which of them to accept.
U of Florida (family close)
ASU (climate, decent LDS/Mormon dating scene)
Utah (instate tuition, on light rail, no rent)
BYU (degree portablity, no rent, cheap tuition)

I'm open to any advice that will help me make my decision. Thanks!

Wait, isn't ASU also on the light rail?

All of those schools are regional and all place (slightly) better than DePaul. If you must transfer for personal reasons, go to the one in the region where you want to end up. You will probably have a better chance at good employment staying where you are, though, just because transferring sucks in general.

If you get into BYU, go there.

Yeah, these are all pretty much the same schools. I am in the same boat deciding between UF and UConn. Go where you want to live and you'll do fine!

I should have clarified there is a light rail stop by my house where I live rent free which will take me to the U. With BYU it is a 45 minute commute each day.

They are all largely the same which is what makes it so hard to decide. I'll most likely want to practice in Utah or Florida. Although I like AZ and would be happy there as well.
