Vanderbilt w/35k vs Duke sticker

Postby nezumi » Mon May 30, 2011 8:02 pm

Just as the title says, Vanderbilt w/35k total vs Duke with nothing. What do you think? Markets seem more or less the same, Duke having a little more portability, but both more focused on the south. Duke seems to be a slightly "better" version of Vanderbilt. Is the 35k enough to offset?

Duke is not worth $100,000+ more than Vanderbilt. It's not.

Where do you want to work?

I will be following the money, wherever that takes me with a slight preference for the South.

What do you want to do in the South? Biglaw?

I think I'd take Duke. Vandy is still pretty expensive even with $35k, so I'd go with the school that has better employment since costs, though a little different, are still very high at both schools.

Who is saying that Duke and Vandy have similar biglaw prospects? They don't. Duke places better than Vandy in the South, and in NYC/DC Duke places far better, just look at the NLJ 250 placement stats. Do Duke, the 35K difference just isn't enough.

Duke is the right choice here.

That said, how much $ do people think Vandy would need to cough up to break even with Duke at sticker?
