Assuming I get in to the University of Nebraska (already in at Creighton), what school would you choose, Nebraksa or Creighton?
Heres the deal, I am at Nebraska currently for my undergrad and I love the town (Lincoln) and the school. Creighton is only 45 min away in Omaha. I wouldn't mind a change of scenery. I am starting to think that Creighton is a good choice. Is it dumb to pass up acceptance at a tier 2 school to go to a tier 3 school?
Nebraksa: Ranked 89th (tier 2) GPA 75/25: 3.83/3.31 LSAT 75/25: 158/152
1st time bar passage: 86% Employment Rate: 81% with 10% unemployed seeking employment
12% employed in business
Creighton: Ranked Tier 3 GPA 75/25: 3.72/3.18 LSAT 75/25: 155/148
1st time bar passage: 81% Employment Rate 90% with 2% unemployed seeking employment
23% employed in business
My gut tells me to go to the higher ranked school (Nebraksa). But, which is more important passing the bar on the 1st try or being employed? I want to say being employed, plus I want to work in business (Creighton has larger % employed in that sector). Creighton has a great reputaion in this area. Also one more thing: cost at Creighton $22,000/year cost at Nebraska $14,000/year.
What does eveyone else think? Please hep me decide.
