My numbers: GPA 2.9 LSAT 166
I'm not exactly sure what field of law I wish to enter, but I want to frequently go to the courthouse, so I'd like to be a litigator of some sort. I somehow got into UIUC with a $10k scholorship, and I hear the education is amazing, so right now I'm leaning towards attending school there. I am from the NYC area, so this would be a big life change, but I am willing to do it for the education. Money is a concern, and if I choose UIUC, I'm planning on paying in-state tuition during my 2L and 3L year. Is this difficult? My other options are W&M with no money, Fordham P/T, which seems tremdously expensive, and Rutgers Newark with in-state tuition and $8k, making total tuition $10k. I could also live at home, something I would not do in the other options. I'd heard that you should always go to the best school you got into, but in my case, that involves moving to another state, something I am willing to do. What's the best option for a hopeful successful litigator?
Scholarship with a 2.9 GPA and a median LSAT? Has to be.
