Need some advice... Money is a big factor for me in choosing a school. I'm also interested in public interest law, so that matters too.
I'm already in at Univ of Illinois, but their out-of-state tuition is $36,000 and it looks difficult to get in-state after first year.
Univ of Colorado and Univ of Washington look like they have more lenient residency rules- I could possible get in-state tuition after first year. However, they are more regional than Illinois and ranked a bit lower (rankings rankings..).
Also trying to decide if it's worth spending another $65 applying to Univ of North Carolina.. Might be possible to get in-state after first year, but even if not, the out-of-state tution is lots cheaper than Univ Illinois at $27,858. Again, ranked a bit lower than Illinois (38 vs 27).
