Duke with total of 190k debt (thats debt from UG+ Grad + Duke at 50% tuition scholly)
-Arguments in favor of Duke: t14, amazing job opps, better clerkship placement, better LRAP, prestige factor, much better access to DC, better weather, beautiful facilities, high quality students
-Arguments against: That debt is terrifying, out of the state where I will probably end up living, no friends, no family, Durhan isn't as cool as Columbus
Goals: PI, maybe politics, maybe midlaw, maybe teach, trial law, appellate advocacy... you get the picture
K. hit me with it.
OSU if you want to stay in Ohio because of this. It's important to keep debt down for that.
If you want DC, then you have to go to Duke. Let the LRAP pay it off.
