Most definitely. It's not "crazy" to pick a lower ranked school depending on your ambitions, and intentions. Share some more details about what you're looking to do, etc.
Well, I really want to get into tax law. So DC has a HUGE advantage in that respect. But if I ended up in a regional firm doing small tax work or estate tax planning, I would be ok with that.
Re: cost @ GW, I'd advise any PT acceptees to strongly consider taking a full-time (staff) job at GW -- http://my.gwu.edu/mod/vacancies -- if you get in -- and get a job -- the first semester after you've worked for 90 days, you can get tuition benefits -- about $12,000 per year. A little more than half of that will be taxed as income, but it's still a big chunk of change in tuition savings. A part time GW job will get you about $6,000 off tuition, and only a few hundred of that will be taxable.
Awesome man thanks!
