I'm 3.25/163....but i graduated a full year early, so my age is killing me.

just curious, and thought I would torture myself a bit more.....

any scholarship offers come with those?

thanks! I've always heard it was smart to go to school in the area you want to practice...just needed some encouragement, I guess!

Thanks. I guess you're right, I just want to make sure that going to a school like that won't severely limit what i can earn, etc. It seems to be the best option for me, though.

I'm thinking about some schools in the midwest, where I'm from and where I  plan to settle down. LSAT is 163, UGPA is 3.25, graduated a year early, worked 30 hours a week, etc. I don't want a job at a big firm- I'd love to work as an ADA or something for a few years, then move into a small firm for health care law (my major is health care admin). So, I'm weighing some private or out-of-state schools that would put me in quite a bit of debt, U of Illinois (my alma mater, which I am HOPING i will get into, but not entirely optimistic) or Northern Illinois University, which isn't a great school, but has a huge alumni connection where I'm from and plan to work- I'd say about 65% of the lawyers in my area are NIU graduates, and are very rarely from out of state, etc. Plus, I would think I would get scholarships there. So, would it help to go out of state to a bit of a better school, or just go to a reigional, cheap school?

Incoming 1Ls / does financial aid offer come w/ acceptance letters?

Will you know how much a school is offering you when you get the acceptance letter?

SMU: I've heard Dallas is kinda yucky...definitely not a San Antonio or anything. Anyone know anything about the campus or city?

U of Montana: I've heard it's BEAUTIFUL. Anyone know about the school? I want to work at a small firm or for the government...would a degree from this school let me do that in kinda-rural Illinois?

u of Memphis: i hadn't heard of it til i started doing research. reputation?

u of indiana: any thoughts? bloomington or indianapolis.
