I've lived in NY and MI. There is definitely a difference in culture and the pace and expectations of life. I personally like the East Coast lifestyle a lot better. I feel like there is a lack of ambition in MI, and I don't like it at all.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Multiple Deposits

It's prefectly fine to put down two seat deposits, and for most schools all you have to do is tell them you're not coming and you withdraw your application via email.

If you feel that way I would go with DePaul.

Have you visited? Did one seem like a place that fit you better? Is one closer to housing, or in a neighborhood you like more?

Villanova by a mile, take the $, prospects are equal or better at Nova bc of its proximity to Philly IMO.

If you don't mind living in Newark/NJ in general I would take Rutgers, especially if the in-state for a 12 month lease thing turns out to be true. 60K for law degree is pretty good deal.

Good standing = way way way better than top 30%. Go to Cincy.

Assuming the scholarship is not renewed, Indy costs ~$1,500 more at the end of 3 years so the difference in tuition is negligible.  This is part of the reason that I am torn  :(

Sorry, should have read more closely. It seems like Cincy is consistently in the low 50's. I know rank does not matter but in real life very often, but I wonder if that suggests a consistently high lawyer/judge ranking?

I dont know if this is true, but I have read many times on this and other law school boards that Rutgers-Newark gives you instate tuition if you sign a 12 month lease.

I think, and I hate saying this knowing I wouldn't be going without them, that the government has made it too easy to get loans for law school, and law schools know this so they charge insane amounts of money for tuition. The problem really doesn't seem to be that there are too many lawyers, it's that there are too many law students graduating with 120K+++ in debt and a job that pays 40K IMO. Although, I'm just an 0L so maybe I'm wrong.
