1. Cost - $90-100,000 more at UPenn
2. Big Law Job (160K) after graduation
3. Percentile comparison (my research has shown that UT top 25% is comparable to the UPenn top 35%)
Any advice is helpful. Thanks.
I'm curious as to where you got the top 25%/top 35% comparables. I was under the impression that Penn was around 55% according to ABA fact sheets and NLJ rankings for BigLaw whereas UT is much weaker on those metrics.
