If you are from Pittsburgh, go to Duquesne, live at home and you will save over 4K in living expenses which will be comparable to the scholarship that Cleveland St. gave you. Try to come out of law school with the least amount of debt possible.
Also, Duquesne has an excellent reputation in Pittsburgh and their alumni like to hire from the school (some of the small-mid size firms will also be more attracted to you if they know you are from Pgh. because they will think that they have some stability).
On the other hand, if you get into Pitt, go there, the program is better and they grade on a B curve (as opposed to Duquesne's C curve) which believe me looks much better when presenting your transcript to an interviewer. Duquesne has basically dealt their students a serious disadvantage in the Pgh. job market by instituting a C curve.
