Boston U with little money or St. Johns full ride

Postby bingboy » Wed Feb 11, 2015 9:43 pm

So Im really not sure which way to go with this and would like input. Clearly BU is a better school and I love it. My parents are paying tuition but if I take the full ride at St.Johns, they will not penalize me for taking a scholly and will help me afterwards financially. They will not do both -pay tuituion and help after law school. Its one or the other. I love BU but Im also practical and wonder if its worth the high tuition? I plan on practicing in NY but not sure in which direction. Any ideas? Is BU the better choice at almost full price?

Wasn't going to get on the "retake" bandwagon. But I don't understand why you would be going to law school with the intention of your parents helping you after you graduate.

Isn't the point of going to law school for you to not need to rely on them?

What are you goals?
These two aren't your only options, right?

BU at sticker is crazy.

I really wouldn't go to BU at sticker if you want to practice in NY.

You retake

St. John's is never the best choice imo...
