Congrats to all of you getting in to Gonzaga. However, I would encourage you to try to find other options (unless your heart is set on Gonzaga). My aunt went to Gomzaga and graduated Cum Laude. She was on Law Review and everything. She also has her PhD so she's obviously a smart woman. She chose Gonzaga because she lived in Spokane with her husband who was in the military and a young child. Unfortunately, she never passed the Washington State or California State bars after trying each 4+ times. She enjoyed her law school experience, but she's a teacher now and not a lawyer. Is it worth it to go to law school if that's how you'll end up? I'm sure her story is not the usual, but I have a hard time believing that the school could be that strong when someone as smart and successful as my aunt couldn't pass the bar with a Gonzaga education. And this is why, I'll be the first lawyer in my family. . .Sorry to rain on your parade, if you choose Gonzaga, please prove me wrong!Congrats again on the acceptances and the money!
I appreciate everyone sharing their opinions...Gonzaga tuition is actually closer to $23,000, and if you subtract the $11,000 scholarship they offered me, it's about $12,000. Being from Seattle, I must admit that paying a few thousand more to stay closer to a big city (compared to attending in Montana, etc) makes Gonzaga a consideration.As far as jobs, one of the associates at the law firm I work for is a grad from Gonzaga, and he is quite successful. I'm still waiting to hear back from 6 schools so don't assume I am set on Gonzaga.
