This is hypothetical, and I know it to be. Assume all of the following is true.
I have absolutely no interest in Biglaw. None. I will not sell my soul or my life or my marriage to make extra bucks. I have a strong interest in environmental public interest work and government work at a livable wage.
I have the credentials to attend a T10 school. Not HYS, but possibly CCN, and definitely MVB. I would also be applying to places like Vanderbilt, WUSTL (I am from St. Louis and would be thrilled to work there), Minnesota, and UIUC. I would also be applying to the University of Missouri-Columbia as a safety, where I would be almost assured of receiving a full-ride scholarship. Mizzou places well in local markets.
Where would be the most cost-efficient school to attend given my goals?
