Remember how your mom told you it’s just as easy to fall in love with a rich guy as a poor one? The same logic could be applied to picking a law school. If law school debt is worrying you, I’d suggest you go for the most generous, richest law school possible. So let’s look at which law schools are dripping with money lately.
Kirkland & Ellis and Northwestern make a love pact. I don’t know how Northwestern University Law School does it, but it seems to be doing everything right. It got itself a nice ranking in U.S. News & World Report (12th place), became a go-to school for Big Law, and somehow managed to make itself lovable to alums. And now graduates are backing their love with big bucks.
