On the one hand I've heard that George Mason is an up and coming school in a pretty good location. On the other hand the Ohio State University seems to be a proven school in a not so awesome location with cheaper housing. Suppose both schools will cost the same tuition-wise, which school should would be the better choice?
Some background info: I would like to do copyright law, but if that should not work out I'd like to have a broad range of of quality program options open at the law school I'm going to. Also, I don't want to be pigeonholed into a particular region of the country, which is one of the few things that concerns me about GMU and their regional rep. I guess I'd like to know how far up GMU will rise and whether they can overcome this limitation and whether this will affect the value of their degree in the long run. Even though I'm leaning GMU right now, I don't want to dismiss tOSU without having some feedback from people who would possibly know more about their program.
