normally i wouldn't waste the effort, but you deserve a giant @#!* you for being such an arrogant a-hole here and such a sarcastic prick in the thread where you bombed on burgh, who i know IRL and who is a great guy.
it seems to me that nu has that "corporate law" image. this might be a setback if one wants to go into public interest?I think your answer depends a lot on where you want to practice upon graduation: nu for chicago/uva for dc, nyc

From my perspective, there is a tremendous emphasis on public interest here. The SFPIF (Student Funded Public Interest Fellowship) program constantly puts on fundraisers throughout the year, and a huge number of my classmates participate. If you volunteer X numbers of hours working for SFPIF throughout the semester, then you will receive a stipend over the summer if you take a public interest related job. Also, NU offers a loan assistance/repayment program, but I don't know what the terms are. There are a lot of trust fund babies here who can afford the luxury of taking a low paying job after graduation, but I'm not one of them If you're interested in public interest law, you'll have no shortage of opportunities at NU.
