they still didn't give you any finaid ?
well you know how i feel.. the $150k debt is no joke.. if HU is offering you a lot of $$$ i really think that you should strongly consider it.. even though you went there for undergradhave you tried talking to the office of multicultural affairs at GW to see if they can help you in any way?
Go to Howard, do well and transfer out to a school ranked higher than GW. Howard is 3rd tier and even though GW is a top 25 school, it doesn't give you the same opportunities as a top 15 school. If this thread was Howard vs Georgetown then I would tell you to go to Georgetown. The debt is important but law is competitive and it helps to go to a top 15 school. If you don't do well your first year then you still have your scholarship at Howard. If you aced your first year then you could probably transfer to Georgetown, UVA and maybe even Columbia. The high rank and access to opportunities from those schools outweigh the debt. I always remind people that you have 30 years to pay off your student loans. I know three people who went to Columbia and Georgetown, did well and got great paying jobs. They paid off their student loans in less than 5 years. Education is good debt because you are trying to get a better position. What's the point of going to a school that has a low debt if you end up with a job that starts in the 30s and 40s? Unless you want to do public interest or govt work. If you want to do govt or public interest then go to Howard. If you want to work in the corporate world then you should transfer up.
