    ^^if your D is interested in a unicorn job (law professor, feeder clerkship, ACLU, international human rights...), HLS might be worth the financial hit. Otherwise, only if the 'rents are wealthy. (It's amazing how many full pay students attend the T6 bcos they can easily afford to.)

    I chose HLS over other top-10 schools with merit aid. I’m glad that I did. The alumni network is huge since HLS is so much larger than many other law schools, and the Harvard-wide alumni network is massive and has helped even when I worked abroad. Plus coming from HLS there is no stress about getting a job of the type and in the location that you want.

    A student coming from Duke or Columbia may well end up having the same career as someone from HLS but HLS placement rates are somewhat better than Duke so there is that small chance that going to Duke will result in different prospects. Duke and Columbia are both amazing schools though so none of them are bad choices though.

    If you’re jealous of me, you shouldn’t be.

    You’ll do well. Just focus on doing your best and don’t focus on what anyone else has or hasn’t done.
