I have a similar scholarship at Vandy (65K) and I am also faced with GULC sticker -- from everything I've seen on TLS and other employment data it seems Vandy is the smart choice generally with the scholarship, but there are variances depending on your specific situation. What do you want to do? Where do you want to work? If you're looking at public interest or government work, GULC is probably the better choice. But saving 75K (and potential even more just because of the COL difference) is probably the smart choice otherwise.
I 100% don't want PI...hoping to crank out 3-5 years biglaw to get experience for in-house. At this point I don't have a geographical preference...I just want to work in a bigish city and make bank haha...high hopes I know. However, I am also interested in attending the school that has the most reach across the country. My fiance's job will most likely have him transferred a few times in the next 10-15 years
