Is Northwestern worth 100k more than UT?

Postby ano957 » Mon Apr 27, 2015 9:55 am

I was able to negotiate a scholarship increase with Northwestern (although not much). COL is covered. Took LSAT 3 times so retaking not an option.

Northwestern
Cost of Attendance: 105k - Would have to take out loans for all of it

UT (scholarship + military benefit)
Cost of Attendance: 5k

Career goals: Have ties to TX, lived here all my life. I know I definitely want to work in Texas, preferably Biglaw

I guess my real question is, will the 20% or so better shot at Biglaw from Northwestern be worth 100k more than UT? How hard would it be to get TX Biglaw from Northwestern? Am I being ridiculous for even considering Northwestern when I could attend UT at almost no cost? FWIW, I visited Northwestern for ASW and really loved it. I could definitely see myself living in Chicago and it'd be nice to have a change from TX for a few years. Thanks!

No question UT is a better choice here. For serious.

You don't have the GI Bill for NU?

Used it for undergrad, all I have left is Hazlewood Act which is a benefit for TX public schools only

For someone desiring Techsus, UT is a no-brainer.

Pretty sure that you can have a great vacation in the Chicago area for less than $100,000.

Just to be clear, Texas is the better option in your situation.

If you go to Northwestern I'm coming to a Chicago to hit you across the face with a bolo tie
