I mean ... I'd choose WashU in a heartbeat. But I'm not you.

Is your preference for Vandy worth 75K? We can't tell you this  :P

I agree that you should think about quality of life, both while you're in school and post-graduation.  An additional $75K in debt at 6.8% means adding an additional $863/month loan payment for 10 years or $520/month for 25 years--payments like that will impact your quality of life, particularly if you don't get a biglaw job (and that's not guaranteed from either school).  I'd take wustl in your situation, but I like St. Louis and I'm uncomfortable with massive debt.  Good luck.
