They were not obvious enough considering that there are a million 0Ls like that on here.

yes I was being sarcastic, it is easy to poke fun at someone like OP. But I think we all can get a little too excited and start to fantasize about actually getting in where our numbers dictate. It's all going to end in one of two ways though for the OP, great excitement, or traumatizing and complete demoralization of failure and rejection, followed by giving up completely due to a loss of self confidence in the ability to get into any law school. Followed by McDonald's employment, moving back into parents house, and nightly solo bong sessions watching old episodes of law and order.

Keep in mind that your COL in St. Louis could be very significantly lower than in DC or NY. Literally you could save almost $10K per year. That stuff adds up.

I live in St. Louis and pay $550/month for a fairly large studio with my own patio and a community pool (only open during the summer of course). I also live in a pretty cool, lively neighborhood with lots of young people.

I can't imagine what living like this would cost in NYC or DC. Plus, drinks are much, much cheaper here.

That being said, WUSTL's national placement has been weakened a bit ITE. But so has everyone's outside the T14. So I'd go to school in the region you want to practice.

At least $1300 in D.C. per month.

I would base my selection on the type of campus you like. Or if you don't like campuses at all choose Fordham.

Clearly flame, as Fordham is, in fact, in the Bronx. And the claim that GW has a campus.

Fordham has multiple campuses. The main UG campus is in the Bronx. The Law School is at the Lincoln Center Campus. NYC Lawyers know where the law school is; many other NYers assume anything Fordham is in the Bronx unless they're Fordham alumni or season ticket holders for the opera/ballet/symphony.
