No stips on any of the offers except for Pepperdine, where I'll have to finish in top 3rd of class each year to keep the $.

EDIT: So Boulder is another option, after evaluating everything, if I receive scholarship $ from CU.


Try to get money out of CU and go there.

Either go to USD and network your face off, get money at CU and go there (your best option), or go to Fordham and drop out if you aren't above median after a semester or third after a year. But honestly, most of these options are not very good ones considering cost and ties. If CU becomes cheaper then go there.

I know you don't want to hear this but... your best option is to retake. Get 3 more pts on your lsat and you can ED to UVA. UVA roughly gives you a 50/50 shot at biglaw.

Your 2nd best option would be to go to fordham. As someone else said, fordham gives you a 1/4 shot of biglaw.

Everything else isn't worth it. Even though USD might be cheap, keep in mind that you are still investing 3 years of your life. USD places below 6% of its class in biglaw. Furthermore, I am guessing you are looking for a job/career. Having 0 debt and no job leaves you in the same situation as now.

Only stip is top third for Pep


RC fail on my part. Damn Loyola really eased up a lot on their stips from last year.


Apparently USD has as well. They wouldn't budge off the top third stip last year.
