If you aren't from SC, I really cannot endorse going there. The school for the most part is only capable of getting you a job in South Carolina, and going to school there is NOT enough to have the ties you need to get a job in SC. You're wasting your money.
This is basically what I'm worried about. I love the state of South Carolina, and definitely the weather, but this scares me. If I go, I would definitely plan on staying in the state long term. I've heard that the market is dominated by South Carolina grads, but I wondered if attending the school was enough to have the necessary ties to secure a job in South Carolina, or if you really actually have to be born and raised there.
