Vandy vs Duke

Postby yeahboiii » Fri Apr 12, 2013 8:29 pm

I've posted before but I'm down to my final two and I'd love some input! I received 48k from Duke and 80k from Vanderbilt, so cost of attending would be roughly $180k for Duke, $135 for Vanderbilt. I want to do corporate, probably NYC but I'd be open to live really anywhere in the east or south. My pre-law advisor said at this point just pick which one I like more, and I really liked Vandy but part of me wants to go for the slightly more prestigious name...

Definitely Duke if you want NYC to be a viable option.

Here's a tip: Never, ever listen to your pre-law advisor.

Also, definitely Duke. It's easily worth the extra $45k.
