UVA $$ vs Columbia Sticker?

Postby hopefull2012 » Wed Mar 14, 2012 1:48 am

Choosing between full price at Columbia and half-price at UVA.

Ideal career path: COA clerkship followed by BigLaw or small litigation boutique.

Thoughts?

Counting interest, debt at graduation (approximately):

UVA - 155k debt
CLS - 265k debt

I think UVA wins.

Over a quarter of a million dollars of debt? Sorry, but thats just insanity no matter how you slice it. Go with UVA.

Thanks for the advice. Obviously HYS is preferable but I'm still waiting on all 3 and the scholarship requires me to make a choice of the options I have so far.

I think I'm leaning towards UVA right now. Any Columbia students willing to make the case for full price?

Don't count on clerkships no matter where you go.

So go to UVA and end up at the same biglaw job.
