yeah it's gotta be a part of your student loans.

After calculating how much I could realistically save over the next 3 years, however, I realized it made far more sense for me to apply to GULC part time since I will be stationed in D.C. for the next 3-5 years (if I decide to extend). That way my cost of living is at least covered and I can realistically afford $13,000 out of pocket tuition my first year and $20,000 after that.

what is t16
more people than not don't get big law at GULC/Texas/Vandy and only around half get it at a lot of t14s. its not a guarantee
