Is SMU worth it with sticker or USD with money? Transferring from TT in the East Coast because of weather.

This is a decent justification for transfer if you're independently wealthy. Otherwise, you are making zero sense.

Well, neither of these decisions are good ones, but you should at least end up with a job out of SMU.

31.7% of USD's 2016 grads were unemployed in the LST data. That's really bad.

I have an unprovable theory that the USD job numbers are low because no one who spends three years in San Diego is willing to leave, even for a job. I got off the plane from London a month ago and I haven't stopped smiling since.

I'm leaving because I don't want to be in the cold weather anymore. My significant other lives and works in San Diego so we will share COL, but she's willing to move to a different state if that's the case.
Yes, the weather is nice here, but I don't really care much about it :)
