Choosing the Right Law School / Re: OSU or Temple ($$$$)?

Is it just me, or is OSU one of the stingiest schools that there is in terms of scholarships?  Their medians are around 3.6 and 161, and yet I constistently hear about individuals who far exceed these numbers and yet get little or no scholarship money.  What's the idea behind this?  OSU is one of the most wealthy schools in the country--I just don't get it.

Do you want to be a lawyer?

If so, go to Michigan.

I don't think this is necessarily correct.  If you want to work near Washington, you can likely get a very good job with a UW degree.

But really, the money is the biggest issue here.  At Michigan, you'd be--I don't know--over $100,000 in debt upon graduation?  On the other hand, you could be paid about $100,000 (is the stipend for 5 years?) to get a couple of quality degrees and graduate with no debt and a chance to be a very marketable candidate.

On the other hand, if your sole goal is Big Law, I guess go to Michigan.

... but then you have her ditching the SO who needs to get a job and finish UG but can't get in to UVA...

Crap...I forgot about that part.

Thread may now be resumed.

Thanks everyone for the replies.

After these schools I would choose between Georgetown (presumably no scholarship) and Vanderbilt (75k).

I don't mind living in NYC for three years but unless I fall in love with the city, I want to get out as soon as possible because of the costs.  I would ideally like to live in DC/VA area.

Alright, that solidifies it.  Send in your deposit to UVA.

End of thread.

I have a theory. It's not based on much, but it might be true.

The schools get to see where else you applied.  Possibly they sent you the letter about the scholarship based solely on your numbers.  Then, after realizing that they were potentially your best option, waitlisted you in order to then accept you with little/no scholarship.

I hope it's not true.

Have you been admitted anywhere else?  These are three great schools, but each seems to have (a) drawback/s for you in particular.  If you choose one of these three, I would suggest UVA or Duke, in that order.

Big Ten, of course.

This discussion will soon be moot.  Does anyone really think the OP will not get into HYS? Those #'s are ridiculous.

The decision should be those three vs. $ at Columbia, which should be a fairly easy choice (to go to Yale/Harvard).

Coors is the Cooley of Beers

Coors is the Yale of beers, obviously the best and only the best individuals are allowed to drink aka not you jbakguy

If coors is the Yale of beers, than today is opposite day. Coors tastes like piss. And I just read that some guy pissed in their river. Think about that next time you drink it.

Haha, exactly.  This explains so much about the taste.
