Schools/Scholarships/Debt at repayment:
Northwestern ($60k) - $153,000
Georgetown ($75k) -
Michigan ($36k) -
I will be financing almost everything through loans. I will likely have a little family assistance (around $5k - $10k per year), which I didn't calculate into my debt numbers above because its not completely guaranteed so I don't want to count on it. I want to go into big law (and then maybe in-house at a large company a few years down the road), and plan to contribute as much of my summer income to my tuition as possible so I did subtract a little bit as an assumed contribution from internships. I'm from southern California, have ties there, and want the option of going back, if not immediately after law school then a few years later. I'm open to working in another market (DC/Chi/NY) for a couple of years as well. I'm currently leaning toward choosing between GULC and NU, because I like the idea of being in a big city rather than in Ann Arbor and because of the lower costs, but if Michigan increases their offer
168/3.5X, took the LSAT once.
Also got into UT, Vandy, UCLA, WUSTL, USC, GW, Notre Dame, Emory, BC, and W&M and got scholarships to all of them. On the waitlist at Duke and on reserve at Cornell.
Any and all advice is appreciated! Thanks in advance!
