$10K won't cover a year of COL. It'll help a lot, granted.

So really over three years you're probably looking at $60-70K total debt at ND. That seems acceptable.

Congrats on having some great options.

Are you shooting for Biglaw?

Assuming COL is the same for each, you're looking at an extra 40k for ND. I don't think it's worth it, unless you have a career path in mind that will be far easier to attain coming from ND.

Also, what are the stips for the schollys?

40k is not a lot. ND unless you strongly prefer wake.

Or.. just go to whichever one you like more. At those CoAs, either choice is fine, so choose without reference to the debt.
