Also, my current job has me collaborating extensively with our Legal Counsel team, so I know what I would be getting myself into, although I will concede that my experience will probably not be a good gauge for what my life would be like if I went into BigLaw.
After factoring in savings and scholarships from both schools, I'm looking at around 150K debt coming out of CLS and 0-10K debt coming out of WUSTL.
You don't want big law and you're talking about a difference of 10k for #18 vs 150k for #4? You would be a complete blithering idiot to go to Columbia.
