Let's limit the discussion to DUKE v. MICHIGAN....

Furthermore, reading comprehension is CRITICAL to the success of a law student.

If you choose Duke it will be because of personal preferences, thus rendering the point of this thread moot.


1) Referring to a woman as "dude/bra" is really rude... If you don't know the sex of the person, use gender neutral terms.


Lol you definitely mad.

I guess I can see picking Duke over Columbia if, when you were saying you want to do NGO work abroad, what you actually meant was "I want to do BigLaw in Atlanta". Or if your spouse has promised to divorce you if you so much as set foot in NYC, for whatever reason.

Columbia is still TCR.

This is what OP said:
I would love to go to Columbia but I have to be realistic about the type of work I want to do and where I will be potentially living post graduation. The remainder of tuition + COL in NYC is a bit too high for me and I am not particularly fond of NYC. But more so its the COL.
"I would love to go to Columbia" doesn't sound like a clear aversion to me. It's obviously the COL that's the main problem but people keep trying to explain that 1) any difference in cost is worth it for CLS given OP's goals and 2) LRAP should make the extra debt essentially a non-issue anyway.

For what you want: Duke.

Then again, take my advice with a grain of salt. Full disclosure is I'm on Mich's WL.
