That's honestly what worries me.

Sure, $60k at NU would be nice, but that's still somewhere around $180k+ total for a conservative final estimate.

Makes me sad to have such a low GPA.
My local TTT for free isn't looking so bad anymore with my career experience and network.

But then it's like, do I really want to spend 3 years out of the work force :/

MBA is looking better and better. Or really I should say any other degree is looking better and better.

Don't go. Law sucks as a profession.

Luckily I'm not in a rush. I like my current company a lot and probably have some room to grow here for a bit. I've got at least another three or four years before I need to start worrying.

I really did appreciate your honesty in your debt thread, btw. Thank you.

These days the best bet is probably to just take the full ride at an Illinois or WUSTL and gun hard. If you get bad grades drop out.

It's actually quite hard to get a full ride at WUSTL even though they are very generous. People way above the medians sometimes don't get it.

I wasn't specific, but I do think it's best to keep total debt-financed COA under $100k (that's the max I would advise anyone else, personally yes I don't think taking on debt is a good idea for LS). I don't think that is excessively conservative advice, but yeah I wasn't specific enough and maybe that's what threw you off.n it's baseless speculation.


Just curious as to your financial experience (for lack of a better term)? Where are you getting your conclusions from?
