I'd like to get some feedback on what you guys think about my situation. I've got a $15,000 a year scholarship at Tulane, and I haven't gotten my aid package from Vandy yet, but I don't think I'm going to get too much money. Both schools cost about $30,000 a year, but with Tulane, I'd only have to pay $15,000 a year for tuition, so it would save me nearly $50,000 over 3 years.
My career goal is to practice at a large firm, preferably in NY or DC. I know at Vandy if I graduate near the top I can get a job like that, but there's no guarantee that I will be at the top of my class. On the other hand, at Tulane, where the competition is probably not quite as fierce, I might have a better chance of graduating at the top of my class and getting a top NY job. What do you all think?? And if anyone can tell me something about Tulane graduates and their chances for getting good jobs. The people at Tulane tell me that lots of NY and Houston firms recruit there, but I wanted to get some feedback from others. Thanks.
