CareerChange:
I need thoughts on whether I should go to Syracuse with a tuition scholarship of $26k (total fee $43k) renewable over three years or to Rutgers (Camden) without any money and out of state tuition ($33k/yr). I am a non-traditional international applicant; I have 5 years of work experience in the finance sector, have an MBA (finance) and want to specialize in corporate law/taxation. My goal is to do well in 1L and hopefully be able to move to Columbia/NYU/Fordham/Cornell/UPenn next year. Will it make a difference when transferring if I went to Syracuse or Rutgers, provided I am in top 10% in 1L at both schools? I have to make second deposits soon, and am really in a quandary. I would love to save $16k by going to Syr instead of Rutgers, but I don't want to jeopardize my transfer chances. Any and all thoughts will be much greatly appreciated!!

Thanks so much in advance!

upgrade:
For some of your transfer targets (it's great you are considering this at this stage, btw) a better school means stronger competition and may make the school look more favorably on you.

dissident:
Don't go to a school expecting to transfer.  Go to a school where you will be satisfied w/ the degree.  Even if you plan to study your butt off, no matter where you go other, smarter, people will be doing the same thing.  Transferring is a crapshoot.
