Full ride at (Samford) Cumberland Law, $46,000 at Georgia State, and waitlisted at Alabama

Postby Southeastregional » Wed Apr 25, 2018 8:26 am

I went to Alabama for undergrad and was waitlisted from the law school with a 162/3.675. I have submitted an LOCI, met with the dean, and submitted new rec letters, so admission will depend on whether they have spots left (the dean thinks they will admit 10 students from the waitlist).

Between a full tuition scholarship at Cumberland and $5,000/year (1L and 2L Years) + $36,000 for my 3L year at Georgia State, which should I choose?

I plan to work in Georgia after law school. My younger sister and bf are at Alabama still, which is another reason that I am considering Cumberland.

GSU Law actually just called me and raised my scholarship! All of my tuition would be paid for except for $15,000.

So is the class full for this cycle? And Atlanta isn't that far away from Tuscaloosa. Go to GSU!

Do you have any idea what the schedule would look like for GSU? Were you accepted to the full time or part time program?
