Hey Stuvxyz,

Great information on SLU career prospects.  Would you mind sharing where you pulled that from?  I'm also considering SLU and I'm wondering about salary potential upon graduation.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: SLU or MIZZOU?

I started another thread earlier (Tulane or Loyola for St. Louis), but the situation has changed.

When my mother (SLU mailed my acceptance to my perm. address) told me that I was accepted to SLU, she failed to mention that they awarded me a scholarship. As a result, I'll be able to afford childcare in St. Louis, so it looks like SLU and Mizzou are options after all.

So, I guess now the question is: Mizzou or SLU for St. Louis? Mizzou is ranked higher but SLU is actually IN St. Louis. It will be around the same price after graduation for me due to my scholarship. I am hoping for biglaw (as St. Louis hours are pretty reasonable; i worked at a biglaw firm three summers ago) or at least a medium-sized law firm.

Congratulations on your SLU acceptance.  Like you, I'm from St. Louis and I received my SLU acceptance last night along with a generous scholarship.  I've also been accepted to Mizzou, and I'm debating because I know Mizzou is ranked higher, but like you said, I know a lot of SLU graduates who are at big firms in St. Louis.  Plus, I've been accepted to both the full time ad part time programs, so I'm considering keeping my day job and going at night.  Things are still up in the air, but they are starting to get clearer.

Congratulations again!

Money is a big issue for me, and I know I either want to live in St. Louis, Kansas City, or New Orleans (pretty much equally).

$5000/yr to Tulane
No $$$ to Mizzou but everyone gets in-state tuition after a year
full tuition to Loyola (of New Orleans)
Not sure how much $$$ to SLU yet (they said my acceptance is on its way)
Not sure how much $$$ to UMKC yet but I am fairly sure I'll get in

my husband, on the other hand, received no money to any of the above schools except UMKC (he got $5000/yr there)

We don't have much longer to decide. I am kind of worried about flunking out of Tulane or Mizzou (the two better schools). Although my LSAT was in the mid-160s, my gpa was embarassingly low.

Any advice/opinions?

Have you heard anything back from SLU about scholarship aid?  Are you still considering attending?

Hello all,
I've been reading the boards for a while but this is my first post.  I am really concerned about my admissions to Mizzou and SLU.  MY GPA is 3.78, but unfortunately my LSAT doesn't really match up...seeing as it is 153.  MIZZOUs 25/75 on LSAT and GPA is 157-161 and 3.22-3.72.  I am graduating from mizzou undergrad in May with a degree in Classical Humanities.  I really want to go to MIZZOU but I fear my LSAT is a little low.  I am so damn tired of the waiting game.  I am just looking to see if anyone would have any insight to when I might hear from them and what my chances are.

And at SLU their numbers are 152/159 and the GPA is 3.15/3.66. 

ANY INFO WOULD BE WELCOMED!! I am tired of the waiting game.  Both schools recieved my app in Mid November.

BTW I already got into UMKC but I don't really want to live in KC.  Thanks all.

Have you heard anything back yet?  I've been accepted at both and I'm currently debating my options.

Is anyone considering attending law school part time in the evening? What do you see as the pros and cons?  What about career prospects for part time students?

I'm seriously considering the part time program at SLU.  I've been accepted to Case Western, and the University of Missouri as well.  I'm still waiting to hear back from a dozen schools.

I'm not sure if part time is the best route to go.  I know it will be a pretty demanding experience.

I got email notification of a scholarship today, which will cover about half of tuition.    I think it may still be too much for me, since with living expenses it will be about 30k. I don't have a cosigner available, so it may be Wayne State for me.

I hear you loud and clear.  I still haven't heard about a scholarship and I just go accepted to SLU's full-time and part-time program with a considerable scholarship for both programs.  I'm seriously considering keeping my day job and taking the money for the part time program.  With summer enrollment, I could still finish in three years, but I'm not sure about career prospects coming out of SLU instead of Case.

There is a lot of talk about Case v. OSU, and if I had all the money in the world and geographical flexibility, I'd have a really hard time choosing between the two because of Case's IP program.

I apologize for being so non-committal.

Do you think Case has a national rep?

Anyone else been accepted here?  If so, are you considering attending?
