They'll wonder why they should waste finite scholarship dollars on someone who's more interested in the money than the program.
P.S. don't play hardball with money offers from other schools. They'll shove a fist in your ass for it.
I'm looking into Quinn Emanuel. It's a biglaw firm, but it's founding partner founded it on the premise of being unlike most biglaw firms. Associates regularly wear shorts and flip flops to work, hours are much more humane than the ridiculous hours of many other firms, and there is far less of the stuffy pretension that pervades other firms. Plus it keeps its compensation levels commensurate with other firms (current base in NYC is 160k plus bonus). Also, they have a profit sharing program (which may or may not be tied in w/ their bonus, not sure on that one). Also, they specialize in business litigation (actual litigation, ie: majority of time in court rooms, not in motioning and discovery in order to pad billables like so many other firms do).
Then again, this is only if I decide to pursue biglaw, which is not very likely right now (unless I can do so at a firm like Quinn Emanuel).
Thanks - I'm still waiting to hear from Chicago but it's looking like it's going to be tough between Northwestern, U of I with money, or Wash U with money. It's likely that I will end up at Northwestern but I'm going to have to convince myself that it's not completely stupid to take on the debt as compared to very little debt elsewhere.
Did you get a scholarship offer from Wash U? When? I'd love to get some $$$ from them.
Also, congrats on Northwestern!
