Haha. Believe it or not, I'm currently deposited at Davis (but still debating USC/UCI). The other one *cough* *cough* is officially a not happening.
1. Did you deposit at this *cough" *cough" school?
2. If you didn't, were you motivated by financial reasons, or was there something else?
(Feel free to pm. Thanks.)
Haha. No, I didn't deposit. It was purely financial. Their offer was $70k+ lower than my next lowest, and that's including need-based aid which is subject to change. Even accounting for tuition differences, my total indebtedness there at graduation would be $60k more than USC, and that's financing only tuition and fees, no living expenses or books! I have zero interest in big money biglaw jobs and close to 20 years less career ahead of me to pay off debt. There's just no way for me to make that work.
