Full Ride To Texas Southern University. Go or No? Why?
« on: April 22, 2009, 12:35:56 PM »
If you had a full ride to Texas Southern would you go?  I am fully aware of the reputation they have.

All are T-4 schools such as Oklahoma City University, Texas Weseleyan, Southern Law Center Baton Rouge.  As you can see the schools are regional because I am from Texas.  However, no other school is giving me a full ride.

Well in that case, follow the money. There ain't no point in putting yourself DEEP into debt if you can avoid it.

If you were accepted into a T1 school, then I'd say that it would be worth taking out the money, but not in this situation.

I would take the full ride and bust your ass for a year and get out.  I mean, study like you've never studied before.  I've heard they are sticklers there for class participation and stuff, like having to do briefs for every case, but then the CivPro final is multiple choice questions or something.  If you work hard and flourish, you should be able to transfer
