Got another question for you.
I am from Boston, and, if not working outside the US, probably want to remain in Boston. I have applied to BC, BU, Northeastern and Suffolk. I have only heard back from BC (accepted) so far. My grades in college were good (3.65) and I have very strong softs (been out of college working in human rights for the UN the last several years), but my LSAT was pretty damn low for BC (still kind of shocked I got in). As a result, they're not going to offer me much money. Northeastern and especially Suffolk, on the other hand, may give me a bunch of money. Under what types of scenarios do you think going to a lesser ranked school like those becomes worth it financially? Do you think a full ride at Suffolk would be smarter than full price at BC? A debt burden of 50k vs. 150k? I think you get the idea... As I talked about in my last question, my primary interest is in public interest / international human rights law, so the whole biglaw thing does not factor heavily into my decision making (though I can't entirely rule it out either).
Thanks for the advice!
