I am from Texas though, and if I were to attend I would probably be able to get COA under $75K. I am not so sure I would attend UT Austin though. I am gunning hard for YHSC or the rest of the T-14 at $$. I want national portability.


This is probably an ad hominem, but I normally wouldn't trust anyone who is "full blown crisis mode" and posts frequently on any site....apart from tls ofcourse


I think this girl has a point though. If i just wanted to get rich and collect gold coins, attending law school would be a poor decision. There are much easier and less riskier ways to make money than attending a T-14, which seems to be the reason a lot of the 170+ LSAT scorers are not attending. I would get an elite MBA and call it a day.

Getting an elite MBA isn't that easy, and like law schools, only a few programs are worth attending. Plus, getting an MBA without previous work experience confers little benefit (of course, good work experience is also near required for admittance into decent MBA programs).

You won't get an M7 without good WE and you won't get finance jobs out of it without a finance background. And you're still paying six figures for a two year party.
