Choosing the Right Law School / Akron vs. Capital
« on: May 18, 2005, 02:29:39 PM »
I was all set to move to Columbus to attend Capital ($11,000 per yr scholarship).  I can move in w/ my best friend, and my cousin is an attorney there, so I was really looking forward to it.  However, I just recieved a full tuition scholarship from University of Akron.  Should I change my plans this late?  Capital is in a better job market, but Akron is ranked higher.  Columbus is a better place to live, but Akron means NO TUITION.  What would you do???

Which one would you choose?  MSU- no $, Cleveland no $ (yet- they said its still possible) but in state tuition, Capital $11,000 pr yr.  I sent in the deposit to Capital only, am I making a mistake?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Capital - Scholars Day
« on: March 23, 2005, 05:50:02 PM »
Just got an invitation to Scholars Day @ Capital for April 16. Just wondered if any acceptees were planing to go...

Does anyone think that there would be any sense in trying to transfer from Capital to OSU after the first year?  I know that my numbers aren't strong enough to get into OSU, so I didn't even apply, but I want to go there for 2 main reasons; 1) my cousin graduated from OSU Law School last year and immediately got a great job @ a Columbus firm and I'm sure that she could help me network in Columbus, 2) b/c I'm really interested in International Law (undergrad is Foreign Affairs/Political Science) and Capital has no IL track or concentration.  That being said, I'm sure my cousin's connections would be helpful if I went to Capital as well, plus the $11k per yr. Capital offered for tuition could mean that I graduate w/ under $50k law school debt.  Does anyone know if it is hard to transfer out of Capital?  I know the admissions process has driven me crazy this far and I'm not sure that it would be worth the hassle to do it again!   :-\

So far my options are Capital w/ $11k,  C-M w/ no $, MSU w/ no $, and Thomas Jefferson w/ $14k.  Just interested in some feedback from others who are accepted/cotemplating attending any of these schools. I have no idea where I'm going...

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Deciding between T2,3,4
« on: January 23, 2005, 06:23:59 PM »
Just wondering if there are others who are having trouble deciding between the lower tier schools to which they've been accepted? 
Michigan State- T4 w/ no financial offers yet, but has many offerings in international law
U of Toledo- T2 w/ no financial offers, and they only offer a certificate in international law
