Hello,Here's the situation:I finished my first year at Tier 4 school ranked top 5.1%I applied to USD, Loyola, UCLA, and USC as a transfer.Then my own school offers me a 3/4 tution scholarship, automatic on for law review, and a job as a tutor for 1st year students. This would save me about $50k over the next two years off of the tuiton, albeit I would be graduatiing from a Tier 4 school.Loyola and USD both accepted me (haven't heard back from the other two). But neither of these shcools (Tier 2) offer scholarships to transfers (or at least not to me).So.... should I stay at a Tier 4 with all the perks and the $$$ scholarship (so my tuiton would be $7k a year instead of $30k) or should I transfer to a more prestigious Tier 2 school and pay full price???Thank you for all responses, and for taking the time to read this!LawDeeDa
i think it also matters which tier 4 school you attend(ed). some tier fours can be solid regional powerhouses (suffolk and william mitchell come to mind) whereas others just don't get any respect at all (like cooley). if the latter is the case, then without a question transfer out of there!
