I'm currently planning on going to grad school next year and there are a couple options that I am considering. The first is to go to a well respected planning school on a full scholarship. This is the option I'm leaning towards because it carries very little risk and I like the environment of the school.

The other option in front of me is to do a dual degree in urban planning and law at T14 university. I would parlay this into a career in land use law. I would spend 4 years and $150,000 on this option. Although, theoretically I would make more money in the long run.

Does anyone have any advice for me? I've heard very poor things about the law field right now, but I've heard good things about the market for people coming from T14 schools and 150,000 isn't too much in the grand scheme of things.
