Also, do you and your SO plan to start a family shortly after you finish LS? If so, definitely go Duke. Babies are money eating machines!

I have nothing to dispute those numbers directly, but I'm going to take any list with a grain of salt after it puts BU over Harvard and ND over Chicago.

Duke is probably the better choice here, but there has to be some serious self-selection going on for their grads to make more "mid-career" than Columbia and Harvard grads.

As an update: I was able to find their methodology and they basically just used the median salary of those in the private sector around age 45. Touché Forbes. I still think Columbia opens many doors Duke may not, and obviously lower ranked schools (Yale out of the top 25) on that list are perfectly acceptable choices.

lol at mid-career earnings mattering :lol:
the people who are mid-career now graduated into a completely different economy than the current one

Take into account that with Columbia you would likely land a NYC SA position that pays around $35K. It is likely doubtful if you could do that at Duke.
