Q: I have reached the point in my life where I have to make a decision about which law school to attend. I have gotten in to Fordham and Rutgers, but Rutgers is giving me a financial aid package that will make it only $5,000 a year to attend.

I know that I want to start my career at a top New York law firm making a top salary and being on their inside track for at least the first five years of my legal career, and I will make sure that no matter which school I go to I will graduate in the top 25 percent, but that’s all I can guarantee.
