WUSTL with that large of a scholarship is a pretty good decision. To top it off, cost of living in STL is very reasonable compared to some of our peer schools in Boston or DC. You can save an additional $10K/ year on COL in St Louis. I reccomend you try and live cheaply.Br3v wrote: Cougar to be honest, lately I have been looking at considering like a BU GW full scholarship ED option, though I'm unaware how truly competitive they are. What's your feeling on that? How else could you truly go about securing a 100% tuition scholarship? Also are there such things as true 100% scholarships for law school (stipends, etc)?
I really don't mean to hijack OP's thread any more than I already have. There's probably a better place for discussion on this. OP has the right idea if she's only taking out $50K in loans and has her living situation covered. You should do like OP is and financially plan on getting a $50-60K/year salary initially, no matter where you go to school. Even if you go for broke and get Biglaw, chances are you're going to want to leave for a better job a lot sooner than it takes to pay down sticker-price debt from a T14. And a lot of Biglaw exit options pay far less, at least initially.
