Choosing the Right Law School / PLEASE HELP! SLU or William Mitchell??
« on: April 19, 2010, 02:52:32 PM »
I have a 3.9 GPA and a 154 LSAT. I have been admitted to SLU and William Mitchell. When the new US NEWS and WORLD REPORT just came out, I was shocked to find that SLU has moved to Tier 3, and William Mitchell moved up to Tier 2 (98th of 100).  Should I be concerned about attending SLU with no scholarship $$$...William Mitchell is now higher-ranked, with a lower cost of living, and lower tuition...?

Which school and why, please?

I have been accepted at 3 Health Law Schools - two USNWR ranked and one non-ranked. 

SLU is #1 Health Law Program - median start pay is $60K - and I have no fin aid. Total Debt $140K

Case Western is the #4 Health Law Program - median start pay of 90K - and no fin aid. Total Debt $160K

Hamline is not a ranked Health Law School, but they do have a Health Law Institute. Median start pay $52K, and I have received 1/3 of tuition. Also, I was selected as a Bakken Fellow, so I'd get an extra $3K per year stipend to conduct research with a faculty member on a topic of my choice. Total debt $90K

Do I go to the best school, the cheapest school, etc? Does the research fellowship mean anything? Please help!
