UChicago$ vs. Duke$$

Postby Delicious Dilemma » Fri Jun 07, 2013 1:32 pm

Scholarship offers:
Duke $72,000
Chicago $45,000

Financing: loans
Where I want to work: no preference.
General career goals: big law then public interest.

Which puts me in the better long term position? Though both schools are much different I could see myself being happy at either.

Total cost of attendance with interest or we can't help, but my guy tells me Duke comes out much cheaper here and gets you biglaw with less debt.

If that's actually true, Chicago. Chicago is worth 30k more than Duke.

I agree. Plus UChicago means proximity to The Taste of Chicago, which is quite the deliscious decision. (See what I did there?)

Chi-town no question. However, if I were you I'd try to get more money out of Duke first.

That would make the decision easier.
