Although a 0L, I would have to say Plessy!!
I would go with Case. I think you keep your options a lot more open there and you still are only paying 8,000 a year in tuition.
No it is 27,000 over three years, so 9,000 a year.
Honestly, if you've made the decision and can't change it, then don't think about it any more. What good could come of that?
I mean that is a good point, but I am asking under the assumption that I hadn't already made the decision in my own mind.
I think it was NALP directory. However, I think that it is pretty close to BS. It lists the median at a 3.10; whereas even the administration says it is a 2.9. This is what they actually list now. I find these GPA's VERY DIFFICULT TO BUY!!! In fact, they don't even make logical or statistical sense. I don't see how the minimum grade for a student in the bottom quarter of the class is a 3.49, while the median student is at a 3.10. I hate all of these stats and schemes that this site, USNEWS, and the schools use to lure students!! Furthermore, I know of at least one school where NALP lists the median GPA about .2 higher than it actually is.
MINIMUM GRADE REQUIRED TO ATTAIN
Top 10%: 3.82
Top 25%: 3.74
Top 33%: 3.73
Top 50%: 3.62
Top 75%: 3.49
Median GPA: 3.10
Minimum grade required for graduation: 2.0
So I have already made my decision, but I need to see how crazy it is. I currently have a full ride offer to MSU (Contingent on a 3.0GPA which I really wish I knew how hard that was to keep) and 27,000 to attend Case (Contigent only on good standing). I mainly want to do government law in Michigan, but of course that could always change. Am I absolutely crazy to take the full ride at MSU- which I have anxieties about the curve?

Not to be a smart ass, but 90% of the people at all the schools cannot do it. With that being said, my advice is worthless since I am a 0L. However, I don't think that negates the fact that 90% of the people are not.

MSU- to work in government law. Although, I just go into Case, but then I would probably have to try for large law firm because MSU is paid for and I am sure Case will not be a full ride. I am pretty sure MSU, but I might decide based on the different looking cats!
