I am at UIUC, probably top 5% or higher, but definitely top 10%, currently enjoying a full ride. I don't have any serious long term career goal really. I am not thinking about teaching, at least not now.
What I do think about doing is to go into investment banking after law school. I know this might be a tough move for a JD, but probably not impossible.
What schools do I have a shot at? I was originally accepted into Northwestern, but turned them down for UIUC. I hope to get into CLS, Columbia or NYU, although I won't find an acceptance from Harvard offensive (just kidding, I don't see myself having any chance at Harvard, but it doesn't hurt to day dream a bit).
Assuming I am top 5%, and considering that my career goal is possibly in investment or business, is it worth it go give up my fullride here and go for higher ranked school? Do I have a shot at CLS, Columbia or NYU?
