Has anyone gone to a more expensive higher ranked school only to transfer to a lower ranked (and less expensive) school?

I have to say that this is the first sensible thread that I've read in a long time (forever?) on LSD? Sanity is alive!!!!!
Well, I have the option of George Mason in state w/a fellowship, which lowers my tuition to 10k a year, or Northwestern, where the tuition is like 40k a year. I'm going to Northwestern.
May I ask why?
Some states are less efficient and it show in the quality of schools. But many state schools (especially in VA) are run very well.
Assuming we're not talking about only the top 14 schools. For national schools (Texas vs. Vanderbilt or George Mason vs. George Washington etc...).
People don't give sufficient weight to the in-state tuition factor it seems.

I don't know what your CC interest rates are right now, but the minimum payment on $20K is going to be pretty significant. How do you plan on covering it with the student budget? It seems like you'll have no choice but to get a part-time job and you'll probably have to find something non-law-related after 1L just to bring in cash to pay the credit card bills. I don't mean to be pessimistic, but with only one month to get things in order, it just seems like it's going to be very difficult for you to manage financially when school starts up.
Do you want a knife so you can stab the OP a few times. Did you not get a good night's rest?? Her debt may be legitimate freak!
