BC, ND($), BU or WF($$$$)

What would you guys choose and why?  I'm a BC undergrad with a long term goal of becoming a judge, if that helps

That depends.  What are your interests, where do you think you want to practice/live after graduation?

I think this thread is a bit premature since BC and BU don't announce aid, including merit scholarships, until after FAFSA is processed.

I think BC/ND/BU are more or less on the same level for a lot of reasons. I'd take the ND money here, but if you get a bigger offer from BU/BC that would change things. I'd also consider where you want to practice in deciding whether to go to the Boston area or Indiana. So far as WF is concerned, if you want to be in the south it might be worth considering w/ the full ride. Definitely try to use it to get bigger offers from other schools.

Barring any money from BC or BU, go for ND. It has connections to all the major legal markets- NYC, DC, Chicago, SF, LA. And the tuition and COL at ND is lower to begin with. And you can't beat the London program.

I probably should have mentioned that I'm a BC undergrad as well.  Long term goal is to become a judge, if that helps

Do you have any idea where you want to live? I think that's an important factor here...

I have always lived in the northeast and love it here, but I wouldn't be opposed to other areas of the country.  The only thing I am pretty sure about is that I don't want to live in NYC, but suburbs of cities are fine (Boston, Chicago, etc).

I know, not very helpful, haha
