Would you rather?

If you knew you wanted big law. Would you rather go to H at sticker or attend one of MVPB with a half scholarship and no stipulations. At H you would be coming out with 200k+ in debt and at the T14 you would be guaranteed to have less than 100k in debt.

Depends if you want to make partner, where apparently H has a better shot. Still a slim chance either way.

Also depends on how debt averse you are. I'd go with MVPB + half scholly. I don't know if it's easier to do well there than at H, but I think the odds of doing fairly well would be worth every penny, and it would still be half as cheap as H.

If you're willing to give up the H name to save 100K+ and just want Biglaw, this isn't that hard of a decision.

This should not be a factor in your decision.

This should be on the back of a Molson bottle.
