Richmond(Full Ride) v. Claremont McKenna(Full Ride) v. Gtown (??) for politics Help!
I want to study politics and go on to be an international lawyer. I loved all three of these schools for different reasons.
Pro-small, gorgeous campus, its free plus I get a $3,000 for anything. I was offered an internship with a History professor studying civil rights museams. Former governor Mark Warner sits on the commision, so I would also get to meet her., D.C. initiative, and greek life, plus research opportunities
Cons- not a lot of diversity, its very much the same type of school i have gone to for most of my life, not in D.C.
Pro-small, Southern California lifestyle, the beach, amazing school for politics and economics, 90%law school placement, its free, washington semester program, JD law program with Columbia University, atheneaum(speakers forum that has housed newt gingrich, spike lee), ex government officials for faculty, got offer possibility to go abroad and intern at the Hague b/c a professor has a friend there, 11 research institute for my various passions-- human rights, local and state governments, great party scene
Cons-- not in D.C., really far from my family, I live in Northeast Ohio, really small, campus is not as pretty
Pro- medium size university, in D.C. one of the world's greatest cities, has the best professors(aka Donna Brazile, Madeline Albright), easiest place to get political internships, it is my dream school, many political figures come to speak at Georgetown (John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, JOhn McCain, everyone) i love the campus, i like the diversity of the school
COn- dont know about the money situation, maybe too big for me, don't have a garunteed internship, i don't know if I have full ride, the party scene is dependent on the upperclassmen, no frats
