I know people have been successful with them in the past.
In related news, I'm leaning very heavily to WUSTL and will probably end up there unless a miracle happens and I get into Harvard or get a near full ride at a T13/GULC. I'm very debt averse and I feel like my target markets/goals (not biglaw or bust but would like to try for it, targeting major markets/secondary markets I have strong ties to) are appropriate for WUSTL
With those goals, WUSTL for free is a great option to have. It's hard to justify the debt if you aren't sold on Biglaw.
Yeah, the only reason I would ever be biglaw or bust is if I had to pay off 6 figure debt. I'll have less than 20k from undergrad and should have well under that from WUSTL, and with little debt I'd be perfectly happy doing small/medium law in Florida, which is something I feel I can get from WUSTL with my ties and network. And if I get biglaw out of WUSTL it will be money in the bank instead of going towards paying down my debt.
