Sorry to derail the thread, but how do people manage their sticker level debt after they leave biglaw? Most LRAPs I have seen only cover positions that are started immediately after graduating or after a 1-year clerkship. I know you are able to lateral to in-house/prestigious gov/etc after biglaw WE, but I am curious to what the average level of compensation these positions provide.
I would do NU full-ride, but I am heavily debt averse. You really can't go wrong with any of your options. Given your situation I could see a good argument for any of the options.
