I donít really post that often, but I need some help guys. I was pretty much thinking I was gonna go to Mcgeorge this fall because I had only gotten waitlists and rejections and the only schools I had left were IUB, Univ San Diego and Loyola Law School. I had already gotten waitlisted at USF so I figured I was going to get rejected from these schools, but I got my IUB acceptance last Friday. YAY. By the way my gpa was 2.44 and my LSAT is 165. I thought I had no chance at this school. So hereís the dilemma. I know it sounds stupid, but would I be dumb for going to Loyola or San Diego if I were to get accepted? What if I were to ask Mcgeorge for more money and they gave it to me? Mcgeorge is offering 10k a year, and IUB is 24k over 3 years and I have to maintain 3.2 gpa.
Things to consider:
Iíve never lived outside of California and I want to live here after I graduate. (How does IUB place in California?)
My family and friends all live in California.
My gf is in California and if I did go to IUB we would have to break up, and I donít want to
I donít know about living in Indiana ( I would know nobody)
Some additional questions
1. How hard is it to maintain a 3.2 GPA at IUB?
2. How hard do you think it would be for me to find a job in California after I graduate from IUB?
3. How hard is it to get in-state-tuition after a year at IUB? People say its hard but not impossible, but what exactly does that mean?
I can't really address many of the other questions, but just wanted to let you know that 3.2 is approximately IUB's median GPA. I visited IUB, so if you haven't and have any questions about what it was like let me know, and I'd be happy to help!
