1) Duke probably is the right answer, but take your Duke offer back to Michigan. If Michigan ups their scholarship offer then it is a different answer
2) Don't put all your eggs in the Charlotte/Atlanta basket, especially with no real ties
+1 to this. the COA difference between Duke and Chicago might be closer to 70K when COL is taken into account too.
and idk if bringing up SA placement is a good way to show Duke's Chicago placement power. most who want Chicago big law who got into Duke prob also got into NU and chose NU. I doubt a lot of people at Duke wanna go to Chicago but idk I'm not a student there yet.
