And in response to why GW places most of its class in DC, that's probably because that's where most of the class wants to be. They currently place about 18% in New York, but I'm sure that if 25% wanted New York, they'd probably get it.
And speaking to Georgetown in particular, how is worth an extra hundred grand to go to a school in the exact same market with a slightly better reputation. It's not the difference between a ranking of 14 and 60. It's typically 14 and 20. I'm really just trying to understand why that's worth the extra year's salary.
Like every school, I am sure that there is self selection into the home market which is DC, but bolded part is hard for me to believe ITE. NYC is the most saturated legal market in the country. If OP wants NYC and picks GW with $30,000 with whatever made up scholarship offer he is using to illustrate a point over Cornell that is a dumb decision. Ithaca will have a COL (and obviously a QOL) so much lower than DC, that money really wouldn't be as much of a savings as it sounds. Also if there are strings attached to money etc. GW gets shit on because it is a really expensive regional with little portability compared to most of the T14.
rest of the T14
