In any case, thanks for taking the time to try to help!


JFC.

The whole point was that people wanted an actual number for your COA, because it's helpful. Otherwise, these schools are substantively identical for your goals (or lack thereof).

If you want to ignore money as a factor, and you don't have definitive career goals at this point, it seems like the best way for you to decide is to visit all three schools and see which one you like the best.

Having visited all three myself, I definitely got distinct impressions of each which helped me to decide. Sounds like you need to do the same.

Regarding clinics: I'm a 0L, so take this with a grain of salt, but NYU has waaay more clinics than both CLS and Penn. At ASW, we were told that as long as you apply to at least 3 clinics, you will get into one of your top 3 choices.

Columbia is best for international law

Whatever that means

All these schools have lots of journals so it will be easy to join one

**just saw you have a $120k scholarship. I say Columbia.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure CLS's program is great, but NYU's international law faculty is second to none and the Hauser and IILJ programs speak for themselves (and are probably the reason NYU is considered the top international law program in various specialty rankings, although I don't contest that specialty rankings are meaningless).
