Okay, I am an idiot and lost my scholarship I had to stay in the top third of my class to keep it, and I ended up right at the median. Not really any chance of getting it back, says financial aid...I go to a very expensive school ranked 40-60, that is well respected in the area. However, if I stay here, it will cost be about 60k/year for the next two years.I could also transfer down to a local state school - lower tier 2/tier 3ish school, fairly well respected in the area (although not nearly was well as the school I am at). It would cost me about 15k/year for the next two years.I have about 30k in undergrad debt, plus another 20k from living expenses for this year...What would you do - stick it out and graduate with 160k/debt with somewhat better job prospects, or take my chances at the lower ranked school, and graduate with 80k/debt.I know, kill self...but I don't want to drop out, I really do like law school and I do want to be a lawyer - my goal is to work at a mid-sized private firm, or possibly government/honors program.
I don't see how it could be 60k/year. Are you in NYC?
