Stanford fits the criteria of things that OP's friend doesnt hate. The difference between going to Stanford and going to HY is near 0. Everything that seperates the two is just stuff on the margins.
This should be a S vs. UT (full-ride) thread. Not really any need to be pushing Yale here.
yale's LRAP basically insures that you don't have to do anything law related, whereas stanford's is probably a bit more generous in terms of pay-out but much more narrow in terms of eligibility.
if you have no idea wtf you want to do, i would think yale is the right answer. if you probably want to do something law related and reaaaally hate the cold, stanford is a possible answer too.
UT is not the right answer unless you're a) so risk averse you can't take any debt ever, even if its a good investment or b) you really just love texas (which happens a lot).
