Your decision is completely personal depending on how you feel about the debt. From a pure financial standpoint I would say take one of the full-rides but there are obviously other factors that could lead someone to select HYS despite the debt(I may be doing so myself).
Also, your profile says you have an MBA from a decent school already. If you are interested in consulting why not just try to do it now?
The UVA/Michigan $$$ v Harvard choice has been talked about a lot on TLS and the discussion seems to go in circles, lol
Two reasons: 1. I didn't have the experience at the time to capitalize off of my MBA and get an upper-level consulting position at graduation 2. I have always wanted to practice law
Yeah Im contemplating Michigan/Berkeley $$$ v. Harvard (potential)$$ right now. Had my mind made up until I decided to think about summer associate earnings and how that could lower debt additionally at Mich/Berk but not at Harvard. Now Im back to square 1. It's basically an impossible decision. HYS needs to stop being so damn cheap with the need-based aid.
Consulting isn't as glamorous as they make it sound. I think I would much rather stick to law (although I only extensively know about life at the analyst level).
