Thank you to everyone who contributed here. I made my choice today and I chose Harvard. Ultimately, I think it is a safer play and it will keep a wider array of pathways open for me. Good luck to anyone else out there still deciding! I hope your choices are easier than this one, because this one sucked in a MAJOR way.

The CW is that one should only take HYS with big debt vs. other T14 with little debt if
you want to clerk, academia, biggov.... and secondary markets without ties.

Since OP wants basically secondary markets, not NYC, they basically have to go to Harvard
if they want a real shot. If they end up at median/below from Duke, they will have little debt,
but will be shut out of biglaw, period.

If they want biglaw, they need Harvard, even with the debt.


That's better.
