Which would you pick? Cornell with no $$ or University of Illinois Champaign with a full scholarship?

The difference in rank (USNWR)is only 10 spots, does rank trump every other considerantion?

I've heard the mantra of choosing a T14 over anything else many times.

Which would you pick and why?

Thanks  :)

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / University of Illinois at Urbana

Hello everyone,

Any help really appreciated.

I've been admitted to U. Illinois-Urbana with a full scholarship. Being a T1 (23) I assume that it places well on the Chicago market. But I'm not sure if I want to live there after graduation.

Does anyone have any information about how this school places nationally? The full scholarship is very tempting :) Im also considering Minn with no $$.

Thank you :)

Choosing the Right Law School / TRICKY T1 vs. T2 Situation

Any useful info please?? I'm considering U. of Minn, UC Davis and University of San Diego. I've read that the rankings matter, but so does location. After graduation I think I'd like to live in Southern CA, but I cannot ignore that Minn. is ranked 20 in USNWR. USD is 61, UC Davis is 35.

Any USD, Davis and Minn. graduates with experience on how these three schools would play in the San Diego market?

I wonder at what point does geography trumps USNWR ranking...

Law School Admissions / UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX

I have a question, I've checked several websites and I have not been able to find anything concrete.

I am a student at the University of Phoenix (Not online) and I plan to apply to law school. Although the University
of Phoenix is accredited I know it does not have a very good reputation.

Do you think it will hurt my chances to be a graduate from this school? Any grad from this school who applied to
law school?

All wll-intentioned opinions are  welcome. :)
