Are there many students, or any that you know of, who commute to BC from the suburbs, or even as far as Worcester?
i suppose that is really why i'm asking this question. i'm trying to balance the fact that i won't be making much money and that that needs to be a factor without compromising my education. quite frankly, i can't think of a school in massachusetts that is all that cheap...none of the umass schools have law programs, as far as i know. same with rhode island. connecticut, maybe, but uconn isn't really my scene.
my numbers are good enough that i think suffolk and northeastern will give me a good chunk of money, though that's obviously never a sure thing. i'm afraid if i pick an out of state school for whatever reason, or at least one that isn't highly ranked (i.e. a cheap one), that i'll be screwed as far as jobs when i want to come back to the area and all the jobs have been snatched up by grads from the area.
i've been trying to look at schools with good loan repayment and forgiveness programs, but i guess i'm still lost. thoughts?Prosecutor jobs don't pay that well.
All of the schools listed are expensive private schools. If you are taking out loans to pay for school I would think all of them are a bad idea.
The only way I would pick one of these schools is if you are wealthy enough to pay your tuition in cash or if you get an a hefty UNCONDITIONAL scholarship.
Otherwise, I would highly suggest looking into your in-state public school (if you have one) or schools that have liberal residence / in-state tuition policies.
