NYU full ride.  Yes it's Yale, but the ability to go to a top five school for free, and the freedom it allows you for the next twenty years, sounds great.  Only go to Yale if you are in love with it.

What are the terms for the full ride at NYU?

Please say this is a flame.  If this makes you hate your life, you deserve neither.

OP - this is an easy way to get people to hate you.  It makes you seem pretentious and unaware of the world around you.  If you ask the question in a more positive way, people respond better.

Incidentally, I'd probably choose yale.  Of course, I didn't wait for the money from NYU, and I'm turning down yale.

if you are that smart, you should be able to make your own decision.

it really depends on what you want to do:

are you interested in academia or big-time clerking? if so, then it's a no-brainer.

are you interested in biglaw? then you'll end up with a great job out of either school, although maybe have a slightly easier time of it coming out of yale.

are you interested in something less well paying? hello, nyu.
