It seems like a lot of people (myself included) are in the position of having money at UVA or Penn and facing sticker at NYU. Do people in this situation ever get a bump in award, or do they just not attend NYU unless they're obsessed with New York?
+1 on this. Similar situation
The above discussion is more important, so if any 1Ls are reading this answer that first but...
Since the law preview appears to be useless, what are the study guides/prep books that could be helpful to read prior to classes? I'm not as gunnery as I sound, but my job is boring and I need to channel my excited energy towards something semi-productive. Any recommendations?
My two cents re: NYU at sticker would be that it entirely depends on where you want to practice. If you're dead set on New York, sticker might be worth it depending on how much $ you're turning down at Penn. If you're open to NYC, DC, or Philly, then it seems silly to give up money (and cheaper COL) to pay sticker at NYU, but you could probably justify it either way.
3) sticker at NYU v. Penn at 30K = Penn.
2) maybe read Getting to Maybe - nothing else.
1) My friend ED'd to NYU, got nothing, negotiated to 30K overall. Supposedly NYU/CLS don't negotiate with each other, but if they're willing to negotiate when you have no other options, who knows. I do think they care more about saying "look, I'm poor and am getting no family contribution and here's why," than saying "hey dude, UVA's giving me 75K. What do you got????"
