Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Tulsa vs. St. Thomas - MN
« on: January 30, 2011, 05:42:05 PM »
I applied to pretty much every school that gave me a fee waiver, one of which being St. Thomas - MN.  They have offered me a full ride scholarship renewable so long as I maintain a 2.0 GPA.

I was also admitted to Tulsa and they gave me a slightly more than 50% scholarship renewable as long as I maintain a 3.0 GPA.

I would prefer to go to Tulsa.  I live in Tulsa. I'm married and have a kid, so moving would uproot my family.  I also have significant connections in Tulsa that should help me secure a job after graduation. 

How do Tulsa and St. Thomas compare?  Should my full ride at St. Thomas motivate Tulsa to give me more money?  I know nothing about St. Thomas.

Are there scholarships available for people who do well on the LSAT but have a low undergraduate GPA?  I think my UGPA was like a 2.78 and I've been consistently scoring in the top 10% on all my practice LSATs.

How about for non-traditional students?  I'm married, have kids, have a mortgage, and have been working in social services since i graduated college (related to my degree).
