I was pleasantly surprised when the email came through this afternoon. Running the numbers tonight, my out-of-pocket costs for the three years (assuming 10% increase in tuition per year and 5% increase in living expenses) would be less than $7,000. That's compelling except for Wake's unsteady employment stats. For example, the median private sector salary in 2012 was $67k. For comparison, Emory Law's median private sector salary is $100k.
I would seriously question that media salary amount for any school, let alone Emory.
And honestly, it's about what you want. I haven't read Emory's stats, but from what I've read on here they are notorious for employing their own graduates. That being said, it's all about risk. You can risk taking on more debt in hopes of getting a high(er) paying job, or you can take the full ride with maybe a smaller chance of making 100k+, but you won't have the debt.
Neither choice is bad in my opinion. You just need to figure out what you want to do, I guess.
I don't know how much debt you'd be taking on at Emory, but keep in mind they place primarily in Atlanta and I think NYC. $100k per year won't be all that special with debt and ATL or especially NYC cost of living. $67k starting in Winston, Charlotte, Greensboro, etc. with little or no debt would make up much of the difference, if not all of it.
That being said, a 165/4.0 probably gets you really good $ at someplace like Emory, and if it wasn't WAY more, I'd probably do Emory.
