GWU$$ vs TCU$$$ [#permalink]

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for some help making a decision and understand the large contrast in schools.

Scholarship:
GWU - $70k out of $102k tuition
TCU (Neeley) - Full tuition

Background:
29 year old male from New England living in Boston. I have 6+ years in financial planning and analysis (multiple industries) and am looking to go into real estate finance/development (possible international focus) after graduation. Also, gf, also from NE, will be moving with me but wont have problem find job as she works in healthcare and will have a master's degree/ 6+yrs of experience by then.

I was very impressed by TCU along with Fort Worth during my on-campus interview and and return trip and will graduate with very little loans. Conversely, GWU has a much better real estate program, great east coast city (less adjustment), and possible wider range of job opportunities. My biggest concern for GWU is missing out on the opportunities they can provide but also dealing with the debt if things don't pan out. For TCU, I am worried the recognition won't transfer outside of Texas and lack of real estate classes, although RE is much more experience oriented than other industries.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

In light of your goals, location and opportunities are more at GW than TCU. I do not see the difference is a problem as long as you are American citizen.

It seems like GWU makes more sense for you given your goals and preferences

Thank you for the input. I just got back from my second visit at GW and it was a mixed. The program offers great industry exposure and international experiences but the RE director would not give me a salary range for students. I found 6% of the 2016 class report with a low of $52k and high of $68k. These are very low but a 1st yr student gave me a $70- $100k range. Additionally, I don't really like DC but nearby Arlington is a better city. I would remain in either area for at least a few years after school bc any RE company hiring would be regional at these schools.

My decision comes down to this: GW has better learning experiences for RE but TCU offers a better culture, city, average salary, and much easier to start a RE business in a few years. Any thoughts are welcomed.

I appreciate the input and I have decided to attend TCU. I will be happier in the program and DFW and I will create the opportunities to get me to where I want to go.

I personally respect your choice, which is not based on ranking. Your decision is based on 'fit'.

Congrats and wish you success in your journey. :)
