Ken | 2 comments SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!:

This book is the 1st in a series of 2 or 3, about a poor girl who get a scholarship to go to a law school set in a city (I'm pretty sure it is NY city). She can only afford a small run down apartment in the "bad part of the city". She somehow meets the male lead character (I think they got assigned to a group project together). He is the stereotypical wealthy college student, hosts parties at his house (might be in a frat) etc. However, both main characters are very smart. He doesn't usually date girls because they are usually after his money, and has parents with high expectations. They fall for each other. He even decides to introduce her to his parents, who of course don't approve of her. BUT after everything, at the end she finds out she is pregnant then decides to keep the baby and when she tells the boyfriend he leaves her because he suddenly thinks she trying to tie him down for his money. The end scene is told from the boyfriend's perspective: he realized she was never after his money and goes in to the hospital to see her (she just gave birth to their baby) only to see one of her sleeping and one of her male friends holding the baby. He gets jealous and decided that she doesn't need/want him so he leaves again without talking to her.

The blurb for the next book goes something like this: 5 years after having their baby girl the female main character has a successful career as a lawyer, however has never heard from the baby's father until now. the male lead realized he was dumb and wants to be a part of both her and the baby's life. yada yada

Mai | 1163 comments I found a series searching online that seems a good fit for your description:
Lost to You by A.L. Jackson is the prequel, so book 0.5. According to the reviews it has all the elements you mention: she is poor and has a scholarship to go to Columbia, his parents are well off and he's expected to work at his dad's law firm, they get paired in a study group and she gets pregnant and he walks away.

Book 1 Take This Regret, takes place years later:
Elizabeth spends the next five years struggling to provide for her daughter and willing to sacrifice anything to give her child a safe, comfortable life. For five years, Christian has regretted the day he walked away from his family and will do anything to win them back just as Elizabeth will do anything to protect her daughter from the certain heartache she believes Christian will bring upon them.
