I have put a seat deposit at Rutgers Camden already. I have family on the east coast (as does my future wife), and they offered me a generous package that would leave me with little debt when I graduate. I have no qualms with living in South Jersey/Philly for the forseeable future.
This is all well and good, but the other day I was informed that I was admitted to UMN. I'm not sure about $ offers yet as I haven't received a packet in the mail. I know that UMN has a better reputation than Rutgers, but I am concerned about debt and mobility once I graduate. Minnesota is nice, I've been there several times, and my fiancee could get a great degree at the school as well in her profession.
Any thoughts? From the looks of it, Minnesota's Big Law hiring isn't that much better than R-Camden's, but a job in Twin Cities would be virtually guaranteed for the top 50% of the class.
I'm not honestly sure what kind of law I want to pursue at this time, so debt is definitely a factor.
