Thoughts? I'm really, really torn. NU opens up Chicago possibly, is cheaper for me, doesn't have UC issues like B does. B gives me best shot at CA, has a better grading system/no graded legal writing, and much better weather/QoL.
I thought this would be a lot easier of a decision but now I don't know.
Wow, B coming through finally.
I mean, now it's a rather tough call. For the normal applicant NU still wins out in a huge way, but for how Cali-centric you are, 75k might just be enough to push B over the top. I mean, you gave serious consideration to B at sticker.
I consider myself equally Cali-centric, and we have the same NU scholly, and if B was offering me 75k I would probably take it. My entirely family would be an hours drive away, my wife would be much happier and in her element, and my job will almost assuredly be in Cali whereas that's still an unknown from NU.
I'm definitely interested to see what others think, but as someone with a very similar mindset as your own, I personally would take B, but that doesn't necessarily make it the right answer...
(This is my initial reaction, but I reserve the right to give it more thought and change my mind if needed)
