Im saying its not worth it to go there at sticker thinking you are def getting nyc biglaw (forget about la). If you are open to philly or maybe no biglaw, then you could feel better about attending.

But if you are going there strictly to try and get nyc biglaw, then its a gamble


? NYC biglaw is 10000000X easier to get that Philly biglaw.

As a Penn student I vote no but this is based on my cycle/experience/numbers. It really depends on your other options. I wouldn't pay sticker anywhere other than Stanford (no interest in HY).

I just meant if you are open to more markets as opposed to just one (even though yeah nyc is obvi the biggest)

Georgiana is a bit ahead of me. 1L OCI went suprisingly well w/r/t firm (and other) hiring. Not sure which is a better indicator of what things will be like when you do OCI.

Yah, its pretty essential to have at least 2 markets that your are willing to work in (and not D.C. and SF or something like that).

To clarify I'm talking about my application cycle, not OCI. I have a job at an awesome firm once I graduate and even knowing that, I wouldn't want more debt than I already have (and I got a fairly significant aid package).

I won't go to Penn at sticker but that's mostly because I got decent scholarships from peer schools with relatively equal employment prospects. If I didn't have those Penn at sticker might be worth it to me.
