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?

I'm interested in public interest, particularly internationally. I'm wrestling with this question 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!!
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.

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.
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!!
