BC worth sticker?

Postby newyorker88 » Wed Mar 31, 2010 9:43 pm

Hey guys, is BC worth sticker? My other options are St. John's full tuition scholarship, cardozo $28,000 per year, Temple $20,000 per year, Villanova sticker, Hofstra $30,000 per year, Pittsburgh $16,000 first year. I'm still waiting to hear back from Cornell but if I get in it will most likely be at sticker. I don't know exactly where I want to practice but probably a big city and not Philly. Also, I'm not sure what area of law I want to go into but most likely not public interest. Any advice would be appreciated thanks

while the numbers are suspect to a degree, BC does place well into biglaw if that is what you are after. at the others, you have to fight tooth and nail for BL. I would choose BC cause I am after BL.

I'd also pay sticker for BC in this case. If you don't want to practice in Philly, I'd say you probably don't want to go to Villanova or Temple. BC's going to give you the most options when you graduate out of the rest, probably to a significant degree.

It's a lot of money, but it's a good investment.

/biased because I'm going to BC

on the other hand....


thats A HUGE AMOUNT OF DEBT TO TAKE ON. Don't expect to pay that back before you're 50 if you don't get biglaw - which is a big if in this economy. If your parents are paying for it, that's another story.
