Columbia (sticker), Berkeley, (sticker), Cornell ($135,000)

Postby ameabue » Fri Apr 25, 2014 9:20 pm

I just want some tips on what you guys think...Is the decision to go to Cornell too obvious or not so much...

I'm indifferent between going and working in either coast as I'm an international student and I don't have ties in any of the two. However, I would definitely prefer the California weather than NY. Also, another reason I ask is because Columbia Law's employment score is significantly higher than Cornell's.

Anyways, I'd appreciate any thoughts....

Yes, Cornell's the obvious answer, in my opinion. Columbia and Berkeley are not worth 135,000 more than Cornell.

Have you tried negotiating for more money?

This should be moved to the "Choosing a Law School" forum, post this info - http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=206299, and do NOT pay sticker.

Since you'll probably wind up in NY either way, Cornell is TCR. As an international student, do you even have access to US federal loans? How would you pay for Columbia or Berkeley? Most other countries don't risk $300,000 on kids pursuing JD's
