Can any of you honestly say that going to say Northwestern at ~$172,000 (taken out in loans) is more financially sound that attending say DePaul for free?
Yes, because going to NU would create at least an option for getting reputable and high-paying work when you graduate, whereas going to DePaul would be a total waste of 3 years of your life.
The correct choices there are going to NU or not going to law school at all.
