Boston U w/ full ride vs. Cornell??

Postby prospectivelawyer » Thu Mar 23, 2017 12:28 pm

Hey guys! I was offered a full ride at Boston U, but I also got into Cornell and they offered me half of tuition. Obviously, going to Boston would be a huge relief financially, but Cornell is a T14 whereas BU isn't. (Also, I'm interested in Big Law, and from what I understand, rankings matter for that).
Is it worth it to give up the money at BU to go to Cornell?
