Current Options
I am leaning towards Duke. Any reasons I should reconsider?

Edited because I got my answer. Thanks

That changes things quite a bit. I'd say your choices are down to Duke, or if you really really really want NYC biglaw, Duke.

+1

Although depending on your numbers I would still retake June to try and squeeze more money out of them (unless you don't have any more retakes). Free money is free money.

I don't know man, he may still want to weigh that against Duke. I mean, if he's just looking at clerkships, then yeah, Duke. But for gov stuff, Duke may be a better option. I must agree with you though, for NYC biglaw, Duke is probably the best of those three. However, if you were doing a straight cost vs expected ROI analysis, Duke would come out on top. But these should all be weighed against each other and considered in light of what's most important to you.

That's ridiculous. You're completely falling into classic TLS elitism regarding Duke in contrast with Duke. I seriously don't get this love affair. There's no way Duke can sustain their numbers, while Duke has been shown to CONSISTENTLY outplace Duke in the target market...

Alright, I'm done.
