Yup. The long and the short of it is this: I want to live in Seattle for the rest of my life, and I didn't get into elite schools or UW. Seattle U is the best choice available for what I want to do. I'm also lucky enough to have some pretty good networks in place already, both locally and nationally.
Makes sense to me.
It doesn't make sense to me. I'm not trying to dissuade anyone from going to Seattle U, obviously you've made up your mind, but just because you want to do something doesn't mean you'll actually get a job doing it. Maybe if you can't get into UW or the elite schools, you shouldn't be in law school? It's not like there is a massive lawyer shortage giving you the chance to single-handedly save the day.
150K is a lot to pay for a 25% chance at a job paying 50K.
The thing I heard from Seattle U that puzzled me was the emphasis on "Social Justice". If you want to do social justice, join the Peace Corps or Americorps, it's a lot cheaper. Or volunteer after work.
