Hello all. I'm really interested in international human rights law and I'm having kind of a freak out moment here. I've been offered scholarships at every other school I've gotten into but these two. I feel like they're the best and will open the most doors for what I want to do but I'm terrified of the burden of debt I will have to face coming out of school. I guess the question is, is it worth it to pursue my dreams? Any thoughts?

Law School Applications / Are Columbia/NYU $90,000 better than GULC?

I'm interested in public interest, particularly internationally. I've been wrestling with this question a lot and I frankly just don't know. Any thoughts??  :-\

EDIT: It was late and I thought it made sense. I got the Dean's scholarship at Georgetown but nothing at NYU/Columbia. I'm wondering if it's worth it to go into debt that much for Columbia/NYU as in are they THAT much better than Gtown? Sorry for being so confusing!! :)

Law School Applications / NEED ACCESS PLEASE HELP
« on: February 12, 2007, 09:01:00 PM »
So, with my parents' income I'm fairly positive I won't qualify for any need-based grants. That being said, even with all this money my parents aren't going to pay my law school tuition. I'm thinking of applying for loans only. If I do this do I still have to put my parents' financial information on the Need Access form? Ideally I'd like to get the best loans possible- Perkins, subsidized Stafford etc. but I feel like my parents' info on Need Access might hurt my chances of getting these. Basically, I'm really confused. I've definitely been a dependent in the past few years but I wasn't sure if all of that just applied to those applying for grants.

Thanks in advance. I know there are lots of threads on this but I haven't found anyone in my same situation.

Hello all-

My ultimate goal is to work for the UN doing international human rights stuff. I've done a million searches but haven't found a whole lot on this kind of topic. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to which schools would be the best to attend if one is interested in such a path and not BIGLAW.

I'm particularly interested in Columbia, NYU, Harvard, Stanford and Michigan. Thanks for any help or advice you might have.  :)

Where should I go next fall? / Mich vs. Duke??
« on: January 04, 2007, 03:08:57 PM »
The cycle isn't quite over yet but these are the two front runners for now. I got a half tuition scholarship to Duke and as of yet no money from Michigan. I know they're both great schools but I kind of prefer Mich a little bit. Any thoughts on the two schools or my current situation? Thanks!!
