Correct. However, B is far and away my dream school (as in the last 5 years of my life have been basically structured around the unlikely dream of attending... and I got in). Theres a million reasons why this is the case but most obviously it's because I'm shooting for SF big law (very insulated.. unlikely to land it from NU). I know that paying sticker for Berkeley over $90k at NU is incredibly, astronomically idiotic, but I may end up doing just that (and regretting it one day).

YOLO.......


Dude, as I've already mentioned today, NU is the 3rd best school for San Fran big law behind Stanford then Berkeley. Go to mylsn personalized ranking, make everything 100+ attorney firms and San Fran location, and try it. Depending in changing the numbers around it may change, but NU is generally way up there.

Forgive me, but I've fished around Mylsn for a bit and I can't seem to figure out how you're generating this statistic. I only see a "proximity to state" category (which seems to refer to how physically close the school is to the selected state). Where's the "SF Biglaw" category? Can you link it? Is it this site?

Thanks man. How do you feel? Very generous but not totally a game changer for me. Certainly gives me more to consider.

Is anyone else here still waiting for a decision and hasn't even been "held" by NU? If so, what's your complete date?

I applied in early November, complete since mid-January.

BigZuck are you in my boat too or just despondent at no $$ yet?

Most likely Duke, UT, Cornell, or NU. The final decision will largely come down to money.

Risa, I've been accepted but no money as of now.

They are planning on cutting class size by around 10%/20-25 students this year.
