Ditto. Looks like Penn
I'm down to between Penn and UVA, which is turning out to be a way more difficult decision than I thought it would be.
Still happy to have two awesome choices, although NYU would have been amazing. I'm counting on y'all to enjoy it on my behalf
How much money would have made NYU a viable option?
Probably anything from $45K up would have put NYU in the discussion, although they would have had to be close to matching Penn ($60K) in order for me to seriously consider it. They're all amazing schools, but $200K+ in loans is tough to swallow, especially given NYC's high COL. I was pretty bummed to get $0 initially from NYU, because I would love to go to law school in NYC. But it's hard to turn down $100K+ in scholarship money at a school (UVA) that would give me roughly the same career prospects in BigLaw as NYU would.
In summary, even though I've all but written off NYU at this point, I'd put them right back in the discussion if a scholarship miraculously popped into my inbox...
