In order to receive the best feedback in this forum, please provide as much of the following information in your original post as possible:

-The schools you are considering
-The total Cost of Attendance (COA) of each. COA = cost of tuition + fees + books + cost of living (COL) + accumulated interest - scholarships. Here is a helpful calculator.
-How you will be financing your COA, i.e. loans, family, or savings
-Where you are from and where you want to work, and other places where you have significant ties (if any)
-Your general career goals
-Your LSAT/GPA numbers
-How many times you have taken the LSAT

Seems like a lot to spend when I imagine (though I may be way off base) that the T14 doesn't have the big leg up on personal injury hiring the way it does in BL type jobs.

shouldn't you have some scholarship money to Temple? And won't you have some police benefits that help pay for the education? This is really tough. Working as a personal injury attorney is probably the shittiest type of apprenticeship because you will prolly make 40k for 2-3 years at a shop to gain experience if you don't get one of the good PI firms. I def wouldn't spend yuor 150k of savings on Penn though. I'd take out loans if you go the Penn route. If Temple is more than 100k cheaper, I'd go there and keep working. If Penn is within 100k of Temple, probably there. To be clear, I'm talking 100k of your money/your loans.

We need scholly info. If you're considering both at sticker, I don't care how much cheaper the tuition is, it's not going to be even close to worth Penn. If you were talking about a full ride to temple against Penn at sticker, we would at least have a debate.

If you're positive you're strictly dedicated to personal injury law, take Temple, no questions asked.

Definitely take Penn. The value of the degree is worth so much more. You'll make back what you lose over the course of your career.

Don't give shitty advice. I'm a Penn student myself, and even I will tell you that if you want personal injury law and want to stay local, it's foolish to pay 270k more than you have to. It's not like Penn local personal injury students make more than Temple local personal injury students. The odds are better yes, but at some point you have to worry about these meh firms being worried about a penn student as a flight risk. I'd like to hear how you can justify the assertion that he will make back the price difference with his goals.
