Alright, so if I decide not to attend a school that has offered me scholarships, it looks like I am going to be paying around 50-60 grand a year for law school. I plan on taking out loans in order to pay for this, but it looks as if I'm going to wind up with around 150,000 in debt by the time I graduate. I plan on practicing Big-Law and have gotten into some schools that give me good placement. How much of a problem is this debt going to be if I'm making around 125 grand a year? I've gotten some good money offers from solid schools like W&L and W&M but nothing from my top choices BC, BU or GW. How hard should I consider saving some money by going to these schools but then limiting some of the chances I have in attaining a higher salary later on. Basically I'm asking for some cost-benifit analysis. Thanks!
