Chicago $10K/yr vs Northwestern $20K/yr vs Berkeley ?/yr

From Midwest. Interested in working in Chicago when done, but flexible to working in NYC or Bay Area. Interested in Big Law/clerkship opportunities. Leaning toward Chicago school, but not sure if 30K total is worth not going to UChicago.

I'd take Chicago. I also think NU's tuition is a bit more, you'll be loosing less than 10K per year. Probably 8K or so. Even less if get spartan with your living arrangements.

Impressive word choice for someone with such limited English skillz.

Berkeley ?/yr = Chicago $__/yr with Berkeley's matching scholarship program:

I've actually got fairly decent English skills but I don't proofread well at all. And on TLS I don't even attempt to. The big deficiency in my grasp of English is comma usage. I just don't know the rules. I should learn them.

Not so fast my friend. Berkeley hardly ever actually matches those, despite claiming to do so.

True, I have definitely called you out on your exceedingly strange comma use before.

The poll says it all. Thanks that is what I was leaning towards as well.
