BU vs. uMinn... NEED HELP

Postby vinrod » Mon Jun 10, 2013 10:46 pm

BU or uMinn? uMinn is giving me more money, but I haven't made a decision and need to by Wednesday. Any suggestions?

Do you want to spend the rest of your life in Boston or Minny? Scholarship amount at each school? Goals as a lawyer? GPA/LSAT?

in order to receive the best feedback in this forum, please provide as much of the following information in your original post as possible:

-The schools you are considering
-The total Cost of Attendance (COA) of each. COA = cost of tuition + fees + books + cost of living (COL) + accumulated interest - scholarships. Here is a helpful calculator.
-How you will be financing your COA, i.e. loans, family, or savings
-Where you are from and where you want to work, and other places where you have significant ties (if any)
-Your general career goals
-Your LSAT/GPA numbers
-How many times you have taken the LSAT

Full at uMinn and 15k/year at BU. I don't want to spend the rest of my life at either place.

I only took the LSATs once. I believe I want to get into International Law, focusing specifically on Europe. Both uMinn and BU offer abroad programs in Italy, which would be ideal for me, since I studied Italian in college.

OP, he is saying this because international law is not really a thing coming out of a T30. Saying you want to practice international law at this level either means you dont know what you are getting into or you are purposefully trying to get a rise out of posters.

Im at a T30. I can verify that international law is in fact a unicorn.

You could have milked this far longer. I'm disappointed.
