Do you know what your total COA will be? At Harvard, probably 230k, but still up in the air. At UT, probably around 40k.
How sure are you that you only want Texas biglaw? Life's too short not to live it in Texas.
Wouldn't it theoretically avoid interest capitalization while OP is an FT law student? I don't think its theoretical. I'm pretty sure I can put off interest on the loans through my graduate studies for four additional years.
How are you that far in debt for undergrad but wouldn't qualify for need-based aid (which HLS actually gives)? Not sure that I don't have any need-based yet -- but Texas' letter of intent is due on the fifth, and Harvard says they'll respond with a financial offer by the fourth. I'm that far in debt because my parents, despite some means, elected to have me pay for my own schooling.
Do we know he doesn't have loans prior to 07? I don't.
OP, do you have no personality whatsoever? Haha, I'd like to think I have one. Smart, cute, funny...My mom tells me I'm great with people.
OP, what's your current salary? $13 / hr at an internship.
Is deferring Harvard for 2 years and trying to pay off some of that $100K a possibility? Don't believe I can defer from the waitlist. Not really in a stable enough of a job to attempt that, I don't think.
