Where should I go next fall? / Re: Is Tier 3 and 4 a waste of money??
« on: November 18, 2006, 04:57:54 PM »
I couldnt agree more with the posters.  If you want to work anywhere or aren't sure where, it's probably best to go to a top 100 or top 50- a national school.  If your staying in the area, then a well respected t3/t4 will be fine.  In cleveland we have Case (#51)and CSU (t3).  But I took a look at the Jones Day roster, and was surprised to see about equal numbers of grads there.  Pretty impressive.  Also, many many many judge's and politicians here went to CSU.  I have a shot at Case, but I am planning on CSU since I will be in the running for "a decent scholarship" per the admissions office.  She seemed to think I had an excellent shot for a good amount of money.  Plus then I wont be 100k in debt...but it all depends. If there is a huge difference in salary, maybe loans won't matter.  But then, maybe in the end you will have more money to live on at a slightly lower paying job without loan payments too, and the school may also give you that high paying job as well.  The most important thing in the job hunt in my opinion is how your grades are.  If I was top 5% at CSU I would probably be in a better spot than top 25% at Case.

I would assume that these should be similar schools?  As far as geographically and standing-wise?  Or one or the other even?

Last year I received a generous amount of scholarship money from one school and none from another.  Providing a copy of the letter confirming my scholarship to the latter school resulted in two, equal scholarship offers.


Wow, that's awesome!  I have to get on this one!!!

Good point, and trust me, I will do anything for the extra money for tuition! (Geez, I sound more like a lawyer everyday...lol.)  I guess I don't even know how to do it?  Do I just call and say hey by they way, they gave me more money so match it or I walk? lol.

Ok, I see on here all the time that people try to get more scholarship money from their top choice based upon what other schools have offered.  How do I do this?!  This could be the best thing since sliced bread.  Does it actually work?! :o

Any you can think of- preferably in Ohio!  And any idea how to know how t3's rank against other t3's?

CSU, Toledo (Toledo may have been T2 in the newest USNEWS.)

Excellent, I was seriously considering CSU too...It's a half hour away from my house.
