Hello all I am currently a senior in high school and I am interested in political science and maybe pre law. I have my top 3 schools narrowed down (some are sports related if that is what you’re wondering), and it’s kind of a weird bunch.
I have narrowed it down to University of Mary Washington (VA), Gettysburg College (PA), Catholic University (DC) as of right now although that could change. Each has their own positives and negatives.
UMW is by far the cheapest, but it is not the best academically on the list.
Gettysburg is affordable, but it would be the most expensive for me and my parents, by far, and it is the farthest from DC, however, it has the best overall academics on my list.
Catholic is a good balance and is in DC, but it is still fairly expensive and still far from overall academics than Gettysburg.
I am just curious, would it be worth it to spend the extra blank amount to attend a better school in Gettysburg, or would it be better to attend the cheaper Catholic University, or even cheaper UMW?
I’m not looking for a specific answer, some advice is all I need, thanks!
