Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Toledo vs. Cincinnati?

I think you should visit both schools and talk to students and the career office. Try to figure out which school is better for you and your career goals.

If the $$$ offer from UT is contigent on maintaining a certain GPA, I would think very carefully about it. Find out how many students hold on to their scholarships.

If your offer is contigent, and you really like Cinci more, I would go there over UT.

Good luck with your decision.

Thanks everyone for your comments.  Yes, Toledo requires a 3.3 for the year to renew, which I'm told is likely 25-30% of the class.  Cincinnati only requires a 2.0 to renew their scholarship. 

Certainly, my goal will be top 20% at least.  But, not acheiving that and losing the scholarship would be a double blow.  Anyone have any information on the grading curve at UT?

Choosing the Right Law School / Toledo vs. Cincinnati?

Hi, you can see all my stats below.  Cincinnati was the highest ranked school I got into, and I received a $2K scholarship per year (negotiated to $3K).  I'm deciding between that school and Toledo.  I also got a full ride from Cleveland Marshall, but I currently live in Cleveland, and I really need to get away from home, plus the bar passage rates at that school are awful.

I'm going down to Cincy on the 14th for the admitted students to see the city.  What can anyone tell me about the city, campus, places to live etc.  I'm going to have to like it a lot to pass up a full ride at another tier 2 school.  Also, do you think my job prospects would be greater if I graduated from Cincy as opposed to Toledo?  Thanks.

Hi, I can't see these because I'm at work.  Can someone tell me where University of Cincinnati is ranked, and if University of Toledo made top 100?  Thanks.

Cincy - tied (4) for 53
toledo - tied (4) for 93


Thanks, I'm choosing between these two schools.  I'm glad to see Toledo made it out of tier 3.   8)
