USD v Pepperdine

Postby noahzak » Sun May 15, 2011 6:44 pm

Hey everyone,

Would greatly appreciate the advice...

Have to decide between Pepperdine and USD within the next week. Both cost 65K...Received a 25K grant at USD for my first year and zero money at Pepperdine. Will be taking massive loans whichever one I choose.

Which would you go to?

Thank you!

Any specific area of preference? (Both location and law-wise)

I guess LA is where I would ultimately like to be, but I've always thought being in SoCal would lend me that opportunity no matter what...especially if I choose summer internships etc. In LA...

Well, 25K is pretty significant regardless of loans. Did San Diego say whether or not they'll renew that $$? If yes, I think SD would be the easy choice.

No word on renewal but from my research and optimistic thinking, it seems it would be pretty easy to renew...Thank you for the input :) Definitely leaning towards USD...

From what I've heard those USD scholarships are usually renewable based on top 1/3
