Oh ok.  Nevermind then it's a tossup.

Now you get the conundrum.  If it was 27K a year, that would be very difficult to turn down.

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.

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?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Is it hard to be in the top 10%

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.  

Hey Matthies,

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!
