This is why I don’t give alumni dollars to Mercer. My student loans, though very small from undergrad, are massive from law school. And what has always angered me is that I wanted to go to Mercer. I could name twenty people easily who did not want to go to Mercer for law school and had lower LSAT scores and entering (and exiting GPAs) than I did, but who got much better deals from Mercer to go to law school at Mercer. in fact, I’m one of the few people I know who didn’t get any kind of deal to go to law school there, but for a host of reasons wanted to go and did go.
So, undergrad may not be so bad (though I still think it is worse for private schools). But grad school is what really sucks. And it is why I will probably never give an alumni dollar to my alma mater.
