So, since your sophomore spring you've been obsessed with law school. It's now your senior spring. So for two years you've been obsessed with law school. That is a REALLY short amount of time. Don't rush into this decision for no reason. You're likely going to end up in crushing debt without a legal job and without a path into politics. If you go to UConn and DO get a legal job, you won't be able to pay off your loans.
Here's my advice: If you want to get to Connecticut, retake until your score gets you a full ride at UConn. And learn how to drive because I don't understand how you could live in Connecticut off of a college campus without a car, let alone a driver's license.
Give better advice. The debt is serviceable under income based repayment plans of which their are many including government and public service loan FORGIVENESS. You may not know how to service 100k of debt on a 50k salary, but the laws provide for EXACTLY this situation. Also, incomes go up over the course of a legal career. Can't judge a 30 year investment on the first year ROI.
If there is a reason for Ferris not to go to uconn it's because he thinks he can do better on the lsat and will put the work in to do better which will greatly improve his chance at CERTAIN job outcomes.
