Go to Georgetown or reapply next year.  The amount of any scholarship can't buy the peace of mind and potential earning power of a top 14.  Be grateful that you got into Georgetown.

Oh, I'm not complaining. I'd just rather a NY school. I know my options now are great as they are...

Thanks for the advice. Anyone else?

I'm not sure how contrarian this answer is, but I say go to Fordham. If you want to be in NY/work there, you'll seee some very solid opportunities coming out of there - probably OCI with all the good firms except watchell. Given its no T14, but its got a great rep in the region, you'll save 60k, and you'll (potentially) compete better against Fordham 1Ls than you will at some of the more cutthroat schools.

There is, of course, the distinct possibility that i am completely wrong.

i would take the advice of that 1 guy and take the yr off - with your numbers u should not only get more acceptance offers but the amount of aid u can attain will be worth the wait
