Please help!!!!!
« on: April 24, 2008, 07:28:08 PM »
My first choice for law school is ASU (I haven't heard anything yet, but I think there is still a chance a might get in).  If ASU doesn't work out, I am trying to decide between U of SC (University of South Carolina) and Campbell in North Carolina.

U of SC:
Pros:  Tier 1, location, wouldn't mind ending up in South Carolina
Cons:  Tuition

Campbell:
Pros:  1/2 scholarship, don't mind North Carolina
Cons:  Tier 4, Buies Creek (location--but is moving to Raleigh next year)

Any advice anyone could give on these schools would be great since I have to decide between U of SC and Campbell by next week. :)  Thanks!

Go Gamecocks.

From my point of view, a half-ride at a T4 doesn't outweigh the employment prospects of a T1.  A full ride, maybe, because you'll come out debt free.  But half doesn't cut it.  You'll likely make up the financial difference in a few years based on increased earnings potential coming out of U of SC.

Good luck!

South Carolina isn't Tier 1, it's ranked somewhere in the 90's if I remember correctly, which is just barely still in Tier 2.  I do agree it's a much better choice than Campbell, though.

Thanks everyone, that is very helpful! (For some reason I thought the top 100 was tier 1?) Oh well, I am definately leaning towards U of SC if ASU doesn't work out! Thanks!
