Re: WUSTL ($$$) vs. UCLA ($$)

neither are ideal for your goals. but putting aside your target location ranking, i say WUSTL. keeping debt at a minimum should be the goal when biglaw odds are less than 50% IMO.

an extra 60k for a 7 % extra chance in biglaw? DONT BE RIDICULOUS

I feel like you applied late, did you apply late?

Given that trxas is your target market, 120k

All are bad options for someone who is biglaw or bust, including UT if you get off the waitlist

I think you have a good chance for WL movement with some cash. I'd make sure you keep sending LOCIs/showing interest to your target schools. If nothing materializes, you may need to reapply and much earlier next cycle.

Agreed. Spivey just tweeted something to that effect. Schools will want to scoop up your LSAT late in the game.

I'd pay a premium for Duke. 150 CoA, maybe? I'd maybe even go a little more, although I'm less debt-averse than TLS, I think.
