I know that going to UCLA makes logical sense because I wouldn't have to pay a single dollar and still be close to everyone who is important to me. I just don't know if I'll ever get a chance to go to a school like Harvard again. I feel like this might be once in a lifetime opportunity. With that said, going to a #14 law school and graduating with 0 debt might also be a once in a lifetime opportunity. And the circle just goes around and around....
I'm going to sound like a dick for saying this, but don't, don't DON'T make your decision based on your boyfriend. It's an unfair amount of pressure on him knowing that you turned down Harvard for him. And while yes, you could say it was family, or it was scholarship, or whatever, that will be the elephant in the room forever. (I made the same mistake turning down Penn for UG, but that's a different story).
COA at Harvard really isn't a problem. You'll pay it off.
