Am I crazy?
I've been accepted at the University of Minnesota and as a Wisconsin resident I qualify for reduced tuition (reciprocity agreement between the states). I've also been accepted at DePaul, Kent, and Loyola with scholarships of 18,000 ; 20,000 ; and 16,000 respectively. With the scholarships it seems to be pretty much a wash financially (esp. at Kent). I want to end up practicing in Chicago (close to my family, girlfriend, always wanted to live there, etc.) and I know for sure that I don't want to do BIGLAW.
So am I crazy for considering going to a T2 school in Chicago (leaning towards Kent) vs. Minnesota? I'm also accepted at IU-Bloomington (with small scholarship) and waiting on Iowa and Illinois (although I think my chances at UIUC are slim cuz I'm out of state). Any advice? I'm really having a tough time with the decision and its starting to get to the point where I need to make some choices. Any help would be great, thanks in advance.
