Who is going to a school that is giving you 0 aid? No grants, no merit, nothing. Northwestern gave away all their money, so I'm screwed. WTF?
you could wait a year and get some work experience whilst re-applying (I am assuming your crazy high second lsat came in mid year and that is why you aren't given any).Waiting a year sounds like it sucks, but if it saves you $60-100K+ (not to mention a year of current salary and work experience) maybe it is worth it.That is all my plan anyway, I am hoping to go from a 163 to a 170+, but I couldn't fathom doing what you did!
[Sigh] Thanks. I just the so-called award letter, and I was shocked by the bill. It's an awesome school. I visited a couple weeks ago, and any misconceptions I had about it being too business-y, etc. vanished. Plus, I already have about $50k in UG loans. Hello, Biglaw, my name is Ms. 7000. I'm already looking for apartments in Chicago. I just want to be sure that I'm not crazy for going to a school with no money whatsoever. I can't even believe that. Oh well, hopefully I'll get off U of C's fancy waitlist, anyway, and none of this will matter.
