If your career goals are biglaw then NYU is clearly TCR.

Do you have any options w/ $ from the lower T14? While NYU gives you a great shot at big law position, 250k debt is a lot to swallow.

I'd say NYU here. While the debt is a burden, putting what you have plus SA money towards and sticking with biglaw can cut down this debt while making a decent living. Also the job prospects will be much better.

I don't have any other T14 options. The law school gods can be cruel to splitters.


:shock: . Well, enjoy NYC. Not only will it give you a much better shot at big law but it will help you expand your network and ties.

Yeah, sticker is tough to swallow, but it sounds like you need to just bite the bullet and pay up. NYU is def worth the extra $125k or so.

Well, I could try to negotiate, but I'm not sure that it'll help. I'm below the 25th percentile for GPA and above the 75th percentile for the LSAT at both schools. I think I'd get more money at UMN if I were above that 25.

I also have a WL I'm riding out (and I'm held at Columbia) but I think my ultimate decision will be between UMN and NYU at the costs listed.

NYU.
