If you want biglaw in NYC, then you go to NYU. Thats the school's bread and butter.

I'm not sure it's a no-brainer. GULC debt will be around 150k (principle + interest). NYU debt will be almost 220k (principle + interest).

Is NYU undoubtedly better for NYC biglaw? Of course, but I'm not convinced it's worth another $70,000 debt at graduation. I think this could go either way.

90k is a lot to turn down. But, if you are median at GULC biglaw will be problematic. Median at NYU you should be able to find something.

You don't have to go to ASD to visit. Just call them up and tell them you are coming down and hopefully they can arrange some class visits or at least meetings with the admissions staff.

50k is a lot of money, but the difference in job prospects from NYU and Georgetown are probably worth it. Median at NYU means you are going to get biglaw unless you are weird or have like 0 experience. Median at Georgetown, not so much. Also, think of all the money you will save on birth control if you are a lady!
