i know you guys love these questions which are asked about a million times a second so...here i go.
i got into bc yesterday and was totally thrilled, especially because i had gotten waitlisted at fordham mere hours earlier. maybe it was the cute little folder they sent me, but i'm really compelled by bc. i think there is a good chance, however (though i know stranger things have happened), that i will not get money at bc. of the other schools i applied to, i am in at suffolk (which is pretty much a no go at this point), tulane with money (though not sure how much yet), and waiting on several others. i expect to get into northeastern with my numbers, and am hoping to get some money for them.
HYPOTHETICALLY, if i get into bc sans money, and northeastern with money, what do i do? i'm not terribly interested in biglaw; i'm really wanting to do criminal law in a big big way. i would like to be in boston, but i wouldn't mind being in nyc either for a period of time. there's a good chance my so will end up at princeton, so being in that area at some point soon would be okay with me if things pan out that way.
additionally, if bc is the right choice, is it possible to work them for some money? i idiotically missed the deadline for the public service scholarship (foolish, i know, not that i would have gotten it anyway, but i didn't see the information until literally about twelve hours before the deadline...doh!), so i'm wondering what my options are.
as always, thanks.
