wouldn't mind working in so cal market, but there is something alluring about at least interviewing for NY firms, which i assume i will not get at ucla.


decide which market you'd like to pursue. if completely set on cali, ucla. if new york, cornell. if you're torn, still cornell because it seems that cornell has more cali reach than ucla has ny presence, thus leaving you with better options.

Michigan $ (24,000/year)
Penn Sticker
NYU Sticker

Unless UPenn gets back to me with a nice big scholarship offer in the next few days, its between Mich and NYU. I don't want to practice in NYC because I'm married and want to start a family, but I'd love to live in New York while attending law school. I'm starting to lean toward NYU at this point. Am I crazy if I turn down $72,000 from Michigan?

Maybe I'll get lucky and Columbia will solve my problem by sending me an acceptance letter.

If you don't want to practice in nyc I see no logical reason to not take the mich money.

Honestly, if it were not for possible personal reasons, I would take my $54k at Michigan over full sticker at NYU, and I want to practice in NYC after graduation.

Fordham


Want to work in NY. GW has a better rank and is on an upward trend in the rankings, and Fordham is on a downward trend.


Thx

I don't know how poor he's planning on being the decade after graduation, but clerking -> non-profit could equal very little debt. If it was biglaw, yeah, Columbia in a heartbeat.

I would typically say Chicago, but I remember your impressions of the schools. IIRC, there was a big difference in how you felt at UPenn vs. Chicago, right?

Why not...

NYU ~$100k
Chicago $60k
Columbia TBA

Interested in public interest, clerking, academia
Lots of personal ties to east coast
