Goals are big law to take on this debt and make the same money I make now doesn’t make sense to me
SuaveCrouton
21:24
Vandy is throwing people on the waitlist they know damn well they'll never give an A to

@UnderRepresentedMassiveTryhard: again that’s big shouts out to my cousin!

@TwinPeacock: if you can get a higher gre score or score above their medians on the lsat that would probably help! That work experience sounds interesting too.

120,000 debt at UCLA vs 0 debt at UF what are we picking
Ijustwannagetinman
22:15
@DonkeyKongEsquire: where do you want to practice?
Ijustwannagetinman
22:16
120k of debt is pretty scary to me tbh because if that’s just tuition you’ll have living expenses too
CopticStrong
22:16
get stipend at uf
DonkeyKongEsquire
22:16
Thats including cost of living
Ijustwannagetinman
22:16
@DonkeyKongEsquire: where do you want to practice?
ConcernedSmilingEmu
22:16
@DonkeyKongEsquire: personally I’d do UCLA because it’s more of a national school and would get me better public interest opportunities
DonkeyKongEsquire
22:17
good with CA or Florida, but from CA
Ijustwannagetinman
22:17
@ConcernedSmilingEmu: you wanna do public interest with 120k or debt? 🫡
Ijustwannagetinman
22:18
@DonkeyKongEsquire: if you’re down with Florida, UF can get you Miami big law but UCLA definitely has more national options
Ijustwannagetinman
22:18
Im debt averse so I’d go where I don’t have debt personally
DonkeyKongEsquire
22:18
Also spouse will have 80k in debt by the time I graduate too
DonkeyKongEsquire
22:18
grad school but not law lol
ConcernedSmilingEmu
22:19
@Ijustwannagetinman: public service loan forgiveness
Ijustwannagetinman
22:21
@ConcernedSmilingEmu: you still have to make loan payments in that scenario
Ijustwannagetinman
22:21
@DonkeyKongEsquire: where’s he/she in grad school? That should probably affect the decision too
ConcernedSmilingEmu
22:22
@Ijustwannagetinman: for sure but 10% of income for 10 years to be able to attend a better school makes sense personally
DonkeyKongEsquire
22:22
We're long distance already and they plan to move to me during law school. Figure it will be easier to do in Gainesville than LA
Ijustwannagetinman
22:23
@DonkeyKongEsquire: i mean definitely cheaper but LA probably has more career opportunities for them maybe? Depends on what they do I suppose
DonkeyKongEsquire
22:24
Healthcare so they'll be good
Ijustwannagetinman
22:27
Ohhhh yeah UF has some good hospitals
Ijustwannagetinman
22:27
Whatever you wanna do but sounds like you have a preference already 🤠 good cases for both placss
TwinPeacock
22:30
@donkeykongesquire talk to the UCLA Fin aid office because for USC and NYU atleast they have loan forgiveness programs for public service grads
22:59
The full ride is an extremely easy choice IMO if you're good with living in florida
DonkeyKongEsquire
23:01
I suppose I always imagined myself in CA, but I think it honestly works better for my life and I've lived in Florida before and its nice
DonkeyKongEsquire

200,000 in combined debt between my spouse and I is just gonna delay our life
