my hard dollar figure is that penn is worth $62,500 more than cornell based off my perception of your risk/reward preference.

certainly no where near 135k

You could always retake and then get a substantially larger scholarship at Penn when your lsat is also at/above their median.

Damn man you have very similar stats to me and I'm from Philly too. If you don't mind me asking did you get those apps in early or have strong softs? My cycle didn't go quite this well (I did apply on a lot of deadlines, though :( )

I would go with Cornell here just bc of how overwhelmingly both Penn and Cornell place of NYC biglaw, which you mentioned as a goal. Philly biglaw is probably more likely from P, so it'd be a matter of deciding how much you value that opportunity v. decreased debt.

Congrats on the acceptances and aid

Thanks! I applied in late October, so that probably helped me a little. I think my softs are average tbh, but it's hard to say. Most of it is probably just getting lucky and applying to the right school at the right time. I was pleasantly surprised with my results though!

Yeah this is definitely along the lines of what I was thinking. It seems pretty doubtful that they will offer me that much though :(
