Help! WashU (COA=75) vs IUB (COA=40)

Postby elephante » Thu Apr 07, 2011 11:28 pm

Minimal previous debt, strong connections to the St Louis area... I want to end up at either Chicago or StL. I'm not set on Biglaw by any means, and I think I would be happy going to either. I've visited both schools and been rather impressed; my impression is that WashU places better but costs more. Is the 35 grand over three years worth it? Am I not TLS material because I think I might enjoy midlaw? Will the Cardinals ever be good again?

Wait...you want to end up in Chicago or St. Louis....but you are actually still considering IUB?

How did you do on the logic part of the LSAT?

(just kidding)

Even if you said, I want Chicago or St. Louis and the only mid-west school I got into was IUB and they gave me a full ride....I would say, retake and reapply or wait a cycle.

(enjoy WashU)
