UIUC ($$) vs. GW ($)
« on: March 26, 2009, 09:40:43 PM »
ITE, I'm having a kind of tough time deciding.  Not taking COL into account, it looks like I'd have to take out $58000 in loans at UIUC, vs. $90000 at GW.  I do think that I prefer GW a bit (and I definitely prefer DC), but if I'm not really looking for BIGLAW, I'm not sure whether the extra $30000 would be worth it.

Thoughts?

UIUC in your situation. $30k is a pretty good chunk of change.

UIUC, but only if you're absolutely certain that you do not have biglaw aspirations
