Not a flame. Does anyone find $150,000 debt to be frightening? I do. I find it scary and I feel like NYU guarantees me corporate law, but not much else. oh, and debt. I don't think it's idiotic to not take on that debt burden. That's a f**king mortgage. I wanted to go to NYU but it seems idiotic to pass on no debt.
nyu doesn't guarantee you anything (finish at the very bottom of a very large class, and i don't think biglaw is going to be knocking at your door)
