Lowest Ranked School You Would Attend at Sticker?

Postby DaRascal » Sat Dec 01, 2012 4:53 pm

Going by the USNWR rankings, what's the lowest ranked school that you think is worth the risk of sticker price? For me it would be Fordham.

Look at the school you are considering attending here: http://employmentsummary.abaquestionnaire.org/

Remember that "business" is meaningless.

Fordham has to be a joke. Unless you're Mitt Romney rich and 200K means nothing to you and it doesn't matter if you fail at becoming a practicing lawyer.

If I wanted to work in Montana, I'd go there at sticker, especially if I were a Montana resident (sticker for residents is $11,026, making total estimated COA less than $100k). It's ranked #145.

Columbia.
I withdrew my app from NYU when it was clear I wouldn't get a scholly and I got generous aid elsewhere

That doesn't make it a good idea. For example, plenty of people pay sticker for much lower ranked schools than Fordham.

Fordham is probably the lowest ranked school where one could reasonably argue it might make sense to pay sticker. It's a tenuous argument, but not unreasonable

Disclaimer: it's the lowest ranked school I considered attending; I did choose Fordham, but not at anything resembling sticker

If I were a resident of MS, and I wanted to practice in MS, I'd pay Ole Miss at sticker in a heartbeat. $13k/yr plus really cheap COL makes it a viable option.

Now that I think about it, BYU at sticker, if you're Mormon, is the winner
