Yup, whole COA. No funds from savings or family.

I do want to work BIGLAW, Boston or NYC.

Not all that debt-averse, but obviously I don't relish it.

Lived in MA my entire life, so I'd prefer to end up in Boston, but if I had to choose BETWEEN Boston and BIGLAW I would choose BIGLAW.

WUSTL is included because I have ties and immediate family that live in the Mid-West.

Any input is appreciated.


If you want Boston biglaw, go to BC.
If you want NY biglaw, go to cornell.
If you want St. Louis, go to WUSTL (note that there really isn't biglaw in St. L)

OK, thanks. BC, then. I don't believe anyone should go 200K+ into debt in the current environment unless it's for HYS or it's for a T14 and the plan is to take advantage of a loan forgiveness program.

The BC scholly will keep your debt down to a non-science fiction level, and it's a solid school which (unlike WashU) is in your target market.
