I am. I'm hoping it won't come to that, but I'd do it if I had to. In all honesty, I'm a splitter and didn't do as well this cycle as I hoped, and I really really really want to go to GW. I don't necessarily think that paying sticker here is right for everyone, and it depends on your other options and what you want to do with your degree. That being said, however, I do think there are a lot of people who take out the requisite 150k in loans and end up doing just fine in the end. Sure, its an enormous commitment, but not an impossible one.
GW is going to be 210k+ (at least) in loans at sticker. I just cower in fear of that number.
I see a lot of people commenting on a high tuition at GW. According to their website, it's $43,998 per academic year. While 43k is high IN GENERAL, it didn't seem much higher than any other peer law school, except for state schools. Aren't almost all first tier private law schools 40-45?
Don't forgot Cost Of Living which is quite high for DC.
