Even if I agreed that for the general population Cornell at sticker constituted a significant risk (and I don't, necessarily) my personal circumstances make it less so. I also think it is a silly assumption that "ITE" is applicable to the economy three years from now. Also I tend to make big life and financial decision based on factors other than the collective wisdom of 0Ls on an internet message board.
The assumptions. . . they boggle the mind.
Regarding the economy? I could be wrong, but my money (150K of it) is on it being better in 3 years. Only time will tell, but I'm making an educated guess. As to the rest of it, I know my own circumstances which I'd be happy to discuss via PM but would rather not post online. Also, I'm not planning on BigLaw so IBR and Cornell's LRAP matter more than 30K total merit aid I was offered at other T20s.
I do appreciate you role on these threads, fshon. It has helped me solidify that I'm making the right choice.
I believe fsohn was referring to the assumption that basing your decision on what's been said here would be basing it on "the collective wisdom of 0Ls on an internet message board," given that a number of us are incoming 2Ls and he/she is an incoming 3L, if I recall correctly.
