UVA$$$ v NYU - California BigLaw

Postby mh013 » Wed Mar 13, 2013 1:51 am

I have ties to southern California, and honestly would be fine with attending either schools.
I currently have $105k at UVA and nothing at all from NYU.
However, I am pretty set on coming back to CA (with an emphasis on biglaw) and would be willing to spend then extra money on NYU if it is worth it.

Thoughts?

Take the $$$ at UVA. Profit.

But don't go to california. That place is a shiTTTThole. The job market is crap, cost of living is too damn high, and even purchasing groceries is TTToooo expensive.

105 (more like 130 with COL) is a shitload of money to leave on the table.

Sorry, one more question:

If I screw up at UVA and don't get the grades to come back, where do most people end up?
NY? Or would I effectively be stuck in the south?

if CA sucks so much, where should he/she end up? Weather and lifestyle are worth the $$$. If he has the money, why not spend it somewhere he'll enjoy.

And including TTTT in every post is TTTT.

Being able to find a job after law school; a place that has overall good job market and where I can do business; not pay taxes up the ass; not have a shit ton of bureaucracy in state go'vt; not have high unemployment rate; not having Jerry Brown as governor

I could go on....

Fair enough. I'd rather make less money and chill in the sun.

CA is where it's at. He'll clearly only move back to CA if he has a job lined (and if he's making $$$ why not spend it). Quality of life? What else do you need? Food, shelter, great weather, and California Gurls. If you need more reason to attend, Katy Perry's "California Gurls" lists a few more.

ANd yes, I'm pretty sure the sun does help with the Vitamin D issue described above

This.

California has good weather, mexican food, and bud. That's all I can come up with. While these shouldn't be taken for granted, nothing changes the fact this state is a POS. Jerry Brown is the icing on the cake.
