Looking for cash money 171/3.77

Postby ccmbr006 » Thu Oct 27, 2011 6:11 pm

I was president of my fraternity in college, Hispanic male, a couple of lawyers in the family, currently a year out of ugrad, and I'm employed as a probation officer. Prefer to stay in the south, although I do have a blemish on all this- I was an RA as a sophomore, and I received an underage alcohol violation from the school (UGA). They caught wind of it and let me go. I was off duty, but they took issue with it. I've had no other disciplinary infractions at school or work since then. To help with this, I've got a good recommendation from my boss now, and My recs from my professors are good, too. I've had some attorneys tell me this issue is pretty piddly, but I guess I'll ask TLS's opinion... Where should I apply in the south for cash money so my poor parents aren't bankrupted?

So not PR or Mexican?

Then you could probably get good money from the lower T14, WUSTL may give you a full ride, and if you have significant work experience (2 yrs is usually the trick) then Northwestern's ED program provides a full ride for those admitted.

Basically white, but I have a hispanic surname, so I know my ugrad counted me as a urm, since they sent me the urm welcome packet. gotta love Athens.

Yeah, then the options I said are probably your best bets. If you were PR or Mexican then you could probably get significant money at CCN on down.

All I really want to do is practice in Georgia, so do you think I'd be competitive for good money at South Carolina, Vandy, and Georgia? Or Mercer ?

You will get HEFTY money at Vandy. No need to even consider USC or Mercer.

Cash money at Vandy, but I wouldn't fault you at all for taking a full ride at UGA :)
