State + Scholarship vs. T14
« on: March 10, 2008, 06:17:02 PM »
I Feel as though this might be a common conflict with many, what would anyone's advice be in deciding between a decent state school (Arizona State) + full tuition scholarship vs. T14 such as Northwestern, Penn, Chicago...

Other Factors:
Not dedicated on staying in Az, but not opposed to it.
Two main interests post- J.D. are with international law and/or sports law (management/general counsel side)

generally i would no, unless you state school happens to be virginia or michigan.

but then again, a full scholly is just that, so if you stay in AZ, id prob go that route

keep in mind the other costs of attending school other than tuition

You sound corporate orientated. T14.

T14 unless you are 100% sure to be public interest bound.

Compare average starting salaries. In most cases, you would make up the difference in tution in less than 2 years of working at the higher salary.
