Put that as an option if you are going to ask in the original post.

Thanks!

I'll attribute the tone of your suggestion to finals induced crankiness, but thanks none the less.

If you want to be a lawyer, they all are IMO. Education costs money, 85K is not that much to be in debt for living expenses + tuition for 3 years, and these are some of the best schools in the country. The biggest cost for school in my book is the opportunity cost of not working during those three years.

85k out of any of those schools is fine, IMO
