I'm not sure I want biglaw, but I am not ruling it out either. I want a degree with the most portability (i.e. not a regional school). I'm looking to practice in NYC, DC, LA, or Austin.

are you saying Cornell because of the money, or because you think the chances are better in NYC?

Ouch. What is that supposed to mean? Lol, I thought we were friends. We shared our passion for Taylor Swift and everything. I'm hurt. :oops:

I think it would be a tough choice.. I honestly think that as far as MVBPNC goes it comes down to a mixture of personal preference/money

also, it takes balls/guts/naivety to admit aspirations of a transfer to HYS.. congrats

I have no idea about the employment prospects coming out of those schools, but I do know that faced with OCI in august I'm scared shitless. You too may have similar feelings when the time comes, so I would say out of the three go with whichever would be cheaper after factoring in all costs - scholarships/residency effects. As far as the top half, top 40% stuff, multiple students at NU this past weekend told me they thought you could safely count on studying your way into approximately the top 1/3, so if you have the guts then count on that.
