I'm really sorry that this set off such a controversy. It really wasn't intended to, but I don't think people need to get rude! I'm not saying that the money isn't a nice benefit, but honestly, we all know Harvard is worth sticker if all other factors are equal.

I'm interested in a very specific type of PI law in which Columbia has a fantastic clinic and two fantastic faculty, and no, Harvard doesn't have nearly the same resources in this specific area. I'm trying to figure out if that clinic makes it worth passing up HLS, if we take the $$ an additional benefit, but not the driving factor.

Thanks, but money's not really a huge factor for me. I'm more looking at what's going to put me in the best place after graduation. I'm trying to figure out how much the clinical experience at Columbia will help compared with Harvard's overall name, plus the possibility of MAYBE managing a higher class rank at Columbia than at Harvard.

Since the students at Columbia will be so much easier to beat out. :roll:

In all seriousness (after messing with you a little bit), you're going to be in a really good situation regardless of which school you decide to attend. At that point, you should just go where you want. And it seems like that is Columbia.
