Hey guys, I'd really appreciate your opinions on my options.

Slight preference to work in either SF or LA but would also be willing to work in NYC.
Interested in Biglaw.

The UCLA scholarship is pretty significant, enough to slightly beat out the other two in my opinion.

How slight is slight? If you want NYC definitely go to Penn. If you want Cali then definitely go to Boalt. It is that simple.

Do you have ties to either place?

OP: Calculate the total COA for each law school before deciding. Your decision should be much easier--especially if you determine what your monthly payments will be over a 10 payback period.
