I recently sent out my apps to several East coast (nyu, columbia, fordham, penn) and West coast (loyola (LA), ucla, usc, boalt) schools. I've been offered a full scholarship at Loyola already, and I plan to practice law in LA.
If I were admitted to USC/UCLA, do you think it's worth it to take out loans and forego the scholarship at Loyola? I'm confident that it's worth it to take out loans for NYU/Columbia/Penn/Boalt, I'm just not sure about SC and UCLA, in terms of getting jobs in LA.
Truthfully, I don't have to decide until I hear back from all of these schools, but it's hard not to think about it ahead of time.
Thanks for reading, and commenting.
