UIUC v GULC????

Postby nwprspktive » Wed Mar 02, 2011 6:39 pm

Georgetown was a long shot, but I got in! UIUC is offering full tuition, so far Georgetown hasn't said anything about $$$$....headed for public interest....HELP! GULC full price or UIUC for free?

If you're headed for PI, take Illinois for free, it's a no brainer.

I thought GULC had a pretty good LRAP for PI? I'd go with Gtown.

Who cares about LRAP, he is going to Illinois for free. You don't necessarily get a higher paying PI job out of a T14 then a T20. To be honest getting a PI job might be harder out of GULC b/c all the grads who can't get Big Law are shuffling for PI b/c of LRAP. UIUC is a no brainer.

Not to mention that DC is a huge center for public interest law. You'll be a rarer commodity coming from UIUC than Gtown.

Depends what you want to do. These people that are telling you it's UIUC and no brainer are fucking idiots do not listen to them.

I hope you're kidding. There's a bajillion law schools in DC, including a gigantic T14 and another T20. Also, rarity of your school's alumni in an area is generally considered an obstacle.
