I'm hoping for a scholarship invite from NYU as that would make it easy to be independent from crushing debt / relying on big law. Its annoying because my parents and friends are all pushing me to take Harvard, even with a full ride. They don't understand.


Yeah, if NYU were to give me a really good scholarship it would be attractive when compared with anywhere.

This. Although I haven't yet pinned down exactly how much I would need from NYU to sway me away. Oh, and I haven't been admitted to HLS yet, so there's that :lol:

:D I'm sure you will be soon enough.

Lol also, for anyone in similar situations, I've decided its wise to not get into any arguments/battles with my loved ones yet until I have more $figures in hand.

It's funny because I've already had these sorts of hypothetical conversations with my family, and they are the exact opposite. They want me to take the money and run at a lower T14.

Biglaw? If so what location?
PI? If so, what area?
Government?
Other?

If I get some interest in this maybe I'll start a new poll.



Biglaw in NYC as of now.

Did anyone here apply to the Furman Academic Scholarship Program? If so, any word from there yet?

Could we add options for "other", in-house, and academia?

In the interest of baseless speculation, I'm going to say that nobody who applied for a scholarship in the application got a Vanderbilt yet (key word is yet) because they're waiting for the other scholarships to finish up.

Got this as well! Hadn't really heard of it before. Didn't apply for named scholarships.
