I didn't apply until early/mid february, and I think it kind of hurt my chances of getting accepted to a couple schools

I would LOVE to go to fordham, but I'd have to take out massive loans, some of which I'd somehow have to start paying back while I'm still in law school, so I'm trying to decide if that's even feasible in my situation

I'm a bit stressed in not being able to decide where to go, but I can't wait to start

That's probably the worst advice ever.
And, I applied to 3 t14s, but I applied pretty much a week before everyone's deadline, so that could've hurt me. Plus, my undergraduate school is not well known at all, and my personal statement was only good, not great. NYU and Columbia rejected me, but I'm still holding out to get into UPENN.

I'm in a huge bind right now and I'm not sure what to do.
I'm looking to get into entertainment(music) law, IP, copyright stuff, etc, and to practice in NYC once I graduate.
Fordham has accepted me, but has offered me no scholarship, and pretty much no financial aid. And I have pretty much no money. (rank 32)
St. Johns is giving me a full tuition scholarship (rank 80)
Temple is giving me a full tuition scholarship the first year, and half tuition for 2 and 3 (rank 58)
Brooklyn Law is giving me 15,000 a year (rank 58)
And I'm still waiting to hear from UPENN (rank 7)
That being said, I know Fordham is typically rated a better school, but theyd leave me in a huge financial bind during and after law school. I need some advice, deadlines are approaching quickly, and I don't know what to do.
