Kansas or Gonzaga?

Postby jag2014 » Wed Apr 20, 2011 2:20 pm

I have done plenty of research but still struggling with this decision. I will be visiting both schools and am currently living in FL. However, I can deal with the cold of Spokane, being that Im from Chicago area.

My decision criteria is prob much different than most. I am not worried so much about employment prospects immediately upon graduating, being that I will be serving as a Judge Advocate within the USMC. However, I am interested in job opportunities after my service and plan on living in CO. Im assuming Kansas has stronger alum network in CO due to it's proximity?

Also, Im wondering of the perception of Military and how welcoming the two campus' will be?

couple of stats that worry me with Gonzaga: 20% attrition 1st yr..13 transfers out with only 3 in..

Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!

Don't you have to work for JAG for about 20 years or something?

no, 20 years is the term to reach retirement with 50% pension. 4 yrs is the mininum service with 6 months of which spent in Basic Training.
