Of course I don't NEED to live in manhattan, but really it was the primary thing that attracted me to Fordham over comparable schools. Soooo I still don't know what to do, I guess just hope that if I get rejected from Georgetown, GW takes me. Or Fordham has an adminstrative error and gives me a full ride. That'd be nice, too.
Hmmm, I would say if your wife is planning on working near where either of your folks live, then that is the best option (since, really, you will be in law school, you will be over worked and exhausted all the time, you can just use the commute time to sleep)
Save the money and use it to pay off your loans sooner...
I actually commuted an hour each way into NYC for high school, and it was really great. It's easy enough to sleep on the trains, or do some extra reading. You might even make a friend.
