Attending a T20 at sticker is generally a bad financial decision.

The only defensible decision would probably be UT in state. Even that is too much money.

a full ride or close to it because you want to practice in NYC and you have no COL at fordham. Even at a full ride, you'd be paying $75k for living expenses. I think in your case fordham is probably equivalent in worth as GULC. Fordham sends more graduates into NY biglaw, although it's questionable what percentage is self-selection.
