Both CuseNation and I had or could have probably had T14 offers at around sticker and chose to attend here on a full. Feel free to pm us if you have any questions. And the same goes for anyone else.

+1. feel free to PM either of us.

A large chunk of the 1Ls had T14 offers (with varying scholarship offers). There are undoubtedly benefits to be enjoyed by attending a T14, even at sticker. But that calculus is shaped by your career goals, your performance in law school, your performance in the workplace, personal goals, and debt.

I will say that if you choose the T14 @ sticker route, do not assume you will pay it off within 3-5 years. That's a pipe dream for most people. Assume that it'll take 6-10 years and understand that there's a chance that you leave BigLaw before the loans are paid off, either because you fall victim to layoffs or the more likely scenario: that you'll hate it and leave on your own*.

*With the caveat that not all BigLaw is created equal. NYC BigLaw is a different beast entirely from STL BigLaw. And true BigLaw is different from market-paying MidLaw


Thanks for the thoughts; sounds reasonable. I don't think it's financially possible for me to go @sticker anywhere. That's just too much debt. I'll definitely have a lot to think about over the next month or two!

You're cute. I've been meaning to change my name for a while since it's the complete opposite of being anonymous, and I finally did it. I mean, do you have any verification questions to ask me?

Good! Just ignoring my thesis/the impending soul crushing decision of choosing a law school by drinking beer and eating foods I shouldn't!

How are things on your end?

Wait until you start a legal writing class.

As long as legal writing isn't concerned with the philosophical underpinnings of the rights to property I'll be happy.

How school exclusionary discipline rates affect school wide academic achievement. It's interesting but my program sucks and it will timatwly add no value to the field because of how we are supposed to construct it

It really wasn't. But Konig. Although the various views theories underlying property law are pretty important. (eg utilitarianism, labor theory, natural law, etc)

Yeah my thesis was on natural law... Woof.

On their website, click the mylaw tab on the top, and say you forgot your password. Then login, and you can register for asw.
