I would chose Northwestern. 160K buys more if you don't have to make a loan payment Really though, I think NYU does place a little better maybe, but no debt is too good a deal to pass on for a solid T14.
Northwestern full ride vs. Penn 60k (no need-based aid awarded whatsoever) vs NYU 37.5k (no need-based aid either)Which one and why?

First years with Harvard degrees are getting laid off at Vault 10 law firms. Keeping debt low is more important than ever. Go to Northwestern. Prospects are admittedly not as good as Penn or NYU, but a full ride is worth it in my opinion.
Penn wouldn't give a poo about NU (not NW) offer. It is not considered to be a peer school. What do you want to do after law school?
