You know Catholic is in DC, yes?


Yes. I do. Are you going to live in the swankiest neighborhood a neighborhood where you won't get stabbed? No.


FTFY

I went to undergrad in NYC and managed to have $1400 a month in living expenses. Including rent, food, utilities, transportation etc. And DC is cheaper


And when and where did you live in NYC exactly? That sounds mighty frugal to me for someone supposedly living in Union Sq or the Village, so my guess is you either went to school a few years ago or you lived in the ghetto.


I graduated May 2011. And I didn't live in the Village. I lived a 45 minute ride away on the N and R train in Bay Ridge. Sure it was far, but it was safe and affordable (3 br/1550 a month. So with roommates it was great). ...........You don't get to live in the most convenient place on a student budget. But it can be done.

I'm lucky enough to be getting half off tuition, that's a pretty good deal for what I consider a pretty good school. I'm absolutely fine with living in the Richmond area and actually hoping for it. I've lived in the DC metro area my entire life, so that's why I have the Catholic appeal. However, the high number of superior law schools in DC is scaring me away (even with the full ride) and I'm leaning heavily towards Richmond. I like that U of R has 150 kids per class (sending out fewer students per year) in a city that has no other law school. I feel like U of R sets me up nicer for the kind of work that I want to do. Thoughts?


What's your total COA at Richmond? If it's around 70K or less I'd do that if you're unwilling to retake.

What kind of work do you want to do?
