P.S. I don't know where some posters are getting their figures for Harvard. Harvard Law estimates cost of attendance at about $70,000 per year totaling well over $200,000 for three years.



Yea, its just because its Havard. It is one of the elites, that can take you places that are hard, probably not impossible, but hard to get to from the other schools. When you can get into harvard, you have to think about making big-time contacts with classmates, and other things like this, and think less about money. I mean whichever school you choose will be with you for the rest of your career, hopefully your debt will not be, fingers crossed of coarse, but at harvard, you should be okay.

also, 70 x 3 = 210, not well over. Plus, most people are hoping on not actually having to take all possible CoA loans, that is just an estimate from the School if you needed to get everything fresh and had no body helping you at all. theoretically at least. 200 I think is a decent estimate.
