So I'm hoping Seattle and Case pull through with some $, but I can't count on that and my choices are still complex. Especially since my work just reversed their tuition reimbursement policy and they will now pay for my Law school, books, etc. As well as paying me around $40 a year and putting a quarter of that into retirement funds, and providing insanely good health insurance--but it is a mind-numbing job.
Cleveland Marshall-Full Time, could live at home, would only have to take out loans for about 18500. Part Time, could live at home or in posh apartment, because school would be entirely free and I'd be making my normal income as well. COST $18500, or $(-40,000)
Akron- Part time, could live at home or in a posh apartment, school would be completely paid for and I'd make my normal income $(-40,000)
Lewis & Clark- Part time, would have to get an apartment, could get a job, hopefully with good health benefits. ($20,000) depending on job.
Willamette- Full time, would have to get an apartment, couldn't get job, $10,000 scholarship, must pay for benefits. ($30,000)
So do I go to a better school and shell out $20,000, hoping to get lucky in the job front and find myself at a similar wage and company in Portland or Salem, or do I stay local and make a decent income while having law school completely paid for (including books, but not computers).
Help me pick because my Seat deposit for Cleveland Marshall is due in 12 hours
