Sorry for another what should I do thread

But I would really appreciate the input.

BC-Sticker (COA ~160,000)
UConn-Sticker with in-state for 2L and 3L (COA ~120,000)
Quinnipiac- Full scholarship (COA ~36,000)

Want to stay in New England. Cost/Benefits of the three choices?

I appreciate the advice. Thanks.

Bite the bullet and go to BC. We've spoken before, and you know I got a similar offer from QU - the career prospects are just too weak for me to consider it a viable option. That leaves you with BC and UConn. BC's placement is so much better, I say its worth the extra 40k.

I picked BC. UConn has good placement in the state while BC has a bit more portability, especially in the rest of the region.With the price difference being so small I would say BC is optimal. I really don't think you should go to Quinnipiac in this case. The price difference isn't worth the unsureness you will have trying to get a job after school. I don't know a ton about Q but if other schools of similar reputation are an indication, it will be much better to go to BC. Plus, if you decide not to do BigLaw or whatever, BC has a really good LRAP from what I hear. Furthermore, most schools like Q (T3?) have very tough scholarship stipulations and you could end up paying half or full price for the last two years. Sorry I can't offer much specificity (I'm looking more at midwestern schools) but I hear BC is a really good school and you should definitely choose it.

Honestly the difference of 40k will not make up for the job prospect differences, go to BC.

Is retaking an option? I like BC, but BC at sticker is cringe-worthy. Also, what are the stips on the scholarships?
