Waco SUCKS, and I heard Cleveland is actually pretty cool. I have a friend who goes to Case, and although I don't know how common this is, he's looking at jobs in both L.A. and Atlanta. If you are on the left politically, Waco is not the greatest place to hang out, except for the fact that it's only 1 1/2 hrs from Austin. Unless the cold would bother you too much, it seems like a no-brainer: take the money from Case. I applied and got into Case, and I live and work at a firm in Atlanta, and all of the attorneys here felt that it has a great reputation. One of our partners even went there. I don't know, I'd say Case for sure, but you gotta decide.
