Retake only if you're certain you will improve.
Congrats. Yeah I'd consider money at the other places. They'll still get you biglaw, but you won't have to write a fat check to a loan provider every month once you get there. Trust me, there are other things you'd rather do with the money, like invest or save it, or even buy a nice watch or a new suit. That said, if Harvard offers decent aid, go with it.
sure. as someone that has already graduated, i'm sure youve got a better grasp of what BIG DEBT means than I do.
i've heard people mention that employment prospects are better for urms than others, all else equal. therefore, I wonder if an above median urm would still have a shot at the super-elite firms coming out of a chicago or nyu given that some dont come to oci.
also, is there something to be said for having HYS on the resume should one decide to transition out of law?
