Gonzaga is located in Spokane, WA (3 hour drive from Seattle). Their cost of living is relatively low. I heard you can find a decent 1-bedroom apartment for $400/month. I imagine Morgantown being similar. I am still debating on WVU 'cause it's hard to pass on their sports program. Their football program is amazing and they should have made to NCAA tourney this year (but congrats on NIT win though). Gonzaga has basketball team that will always make to NCAA tourney and they got good recruits coming in. So aside from sports, Gonzaga is a private school w/ tuition of $27,000. I am out of state so at WVU, it's something like $20,000 for me. Do you know when I'll become WV resident? I know for Florida, you can't become a resident if you live there strictly for school. I heard Arkansas, you can just get a driver's license and become a resident there. I don't know if it's the same with WV.
Also for the their academics. I know both WVU and Gonzaga has history of dropping down to tier 4, but who has better chance of going up to top 100? I heard from someone's post that Gonzaga got a new dean and he is looking to make Zags "national" law school...
