While she said she was happy with her decision, she also said that in today's market, she couldn't promise that she would make the same choice given the uncertainty of the legal job market. She didn't say that she regretted it, but it does remind me that we're in sort of unprecedented times when the value of a sticker law degree isn't what it used to be. It makes it hard to gauge future outcomes.
Which is why it's so safe to take that Cornell money.
On a side note, have you appealed to Cornell asking for more money? It seems from the c/o 2016 thread their pot is still full of money. If you eeked out another 10k/ year maybe you'd feel even better ?
yeah, they already turned down my appeal
and idk the more I read ITT the more I feel like I'll end up at Cornell because they're likely (hopefully) to give me the most money.
