I've already withdrawn from Akron, but they offered me a $5000 scholarship today, in case anyone is still hoping for $. I am praying for funds from Lewis & Clark but I don't know if it will happen, though they extended my deposit deadline to allow them to see the situation. Anyone received a recent scholarship from them?

Otherwise it is to Cleveland Marshall on a full ride (thanks to work) that I am bound.

Thank you for the thoughtful response! I will check it out.

well then for God sakes man go to Oregon--do it for Shaz and I ! Send pictures!!!

OOOOh I am a sucker for Oregon but decided not to attend  L & C because of $!

I've heard it is a professor by professor basis... and compared to some of these places with 2.0 curves, a B curve seems generous :)

Yeah, EEEP is right! I would much rather have the freedom to do whatever when I graduate.

grads... CM and L & C in particular, but either public or private. Yes, starting salaries.

that is very true. I think overall the relief of the 'no $' aspect is enough to recommend Cleveland State. I hope you love dayton, and if you transfer to case and need a roommate let me know! My friend went to Dayton for undergrad and LOVED it.

I wouldn't mind the federal loans, it is just the idea of the private loans that scare me. And L & C would be about $24000 or something ridiculous in private loans. After the $18000 in fed. loans.

Unfortunately our west coast branch is in California :(

So how are you coming with your decision? Where will you be this fall?

Just thought of something: can always move west and open up a private practice. I will be working the network out there for sure.

anyone know of a reliable place to find stats about first year starting salaries without having to subscribe to the site? Not a debate on their value, I recognize they are averages and sometimes self reported, etc, but would like to see them.

All very good insights. I would transfer to L & C before I transferred to Case... I spoke to an attorney that attends my church and he said Case's education is very esoteric, whereas CM grads hit the ground running. perhaps it wont make a difference in salary, but I know in sanity it might, though I do know it's better reputation. My employer wouldn't pay for Case because they have no night school. They would if they did. I will take seriously what you said about the Oregon/Washington move... after a free year at CM I might be inclined to look for a job out west and go PT to Lewis & Clark. I don't know how easy I will find working & going PT but I worked and went full time through undergrad, so I suspect I will at least be a little prepared by past experience. I am the kind of person that has to be busy all the time so it will probably be nice in a twisted way.
