Usually Georgetown's scholarship acceptance stipulation is that you withdraw from any other schools to which you've been admitted.

Update on this OP?

Do you think GULC is 36K better than Vandy (so to speak)? Any thought?



Yes. 

This is especially true if you want to eventually end up in China/Hong Kong. There are 2 big reasons you should choose GULC:

1) It's more prestigous than Vandy. 

2) You will be in DC, blocks away from the white house.  This gives you much more "international" opportunities (including internships while you're in law school) that you will not get at some small town in the middle of TN. 

Living in DC for three years also allows you the opportunity to "network" to get that overseas job.  I am almost positive that there are more international students and more "global" professors at GULC than at Vandy. 

You got friends who would loan you some $$$$$ just like that?

Meh, some extra cash in the bank and a degree from a legit school never hurt anyone.

This might be true for Joe Smith who wants to end up in Atlanta, but, it is not true for a Chinese guy who wants to eventually or immediately after law school return to China.

The difference in prestige cannot be overstated.

Homeboy should go somewhere better than GULC if that's the case (I cared not to read his post).
