NYU gave me 15K/yr and Duke has done the same. I know I do not want to practice in New York so is there any reason to endure three years of New York life (with little or no spending $$$). Any comments are greatly appreciated.
How much weight does the NYU name carry? Is there a significant drop off in terms of prestige if I chose Duke? Finally, is New York unbearable to live in with little disposable funds? Thanks again for any advice-- I'm truly in a dilemma.
