A difference of approximately $150k worth of debt sucks. The psychological effect of that much debt hanging over your head is draining, and having already experienced (albeit on a smaller scale) paying back undergrad loans, I wouldn't want to go through that again with even more debt. I just feel like a full-ride at a non-HYS may not give you as much opportunities in terms of making some job outcomes less likely or nearly impossible (elite firms, clerkships, academia, etc.), but at least with a full-ride you come out of a great school with no debt.
Why does everyone hate on Gtown? I don't understand it. lol
It is t-14 isnt it? Therefore it should be a better choice than any non t-14 school, right? But i wouldnt know that if i just read your posts on schools, and this is in multiple topics. Why does everyone hate on Gtown??
