Choosing the Right Law School / NYU vs Columbia..help!
« on: March 25, 2005, 09:20:33 AM »
In at both, Columbia with full $ for three years, NYU with full $ for first two years and 1/2 for last year if i work 2L summer in private practice, full if I work in public interest.

I'm into IP and Health law
Thoughts?
Differences in student body, competitiveness, placement, etc...
I hear Columbia is more competitive...true?

Choosing the Right Law School / Decisions: C or H?
« on: March 22, 2005, 12:41:01 PM »
I have to choose between Harvard and Columbia with the Hamilton (120k).

I want to be an ip lawyer, or an entertainment lawyer (right now at least, who knows, i may discover a love for tax law).

Pros/Cons

Columbia: Hamilton, low debt load (60k - money saved in 1L and 2L summers)
NYC!

Harvard: Haaaaaaaarvard, LIPP (not dependent on Public interest involvement). Higher debt load (90k minimum).

I guess it boils down to, is the Harvard name worth the extra cash?

Choosing the Right Law School / Scholarships/Grants at T14s
« on: March 08, 2005, 01:16:49 PM »
Hey, I was wondering what the biggest scholarships are at the top schools. Is full tuition the max, or do some people get tuition + a stipend?
Or, for those programs that have a big need based component, do any schools give out grants for tuition + living, or is the max grant tuition and then one must supplement with a loan?

What are the biggest scholarships that people have heard about/gotten above full tuition if they exist?

thanks LSD peoples.
