For me it had both Rutgers-Camden and Rutgers-Newark: 

"Recommended for Admission"

Once you are in-state at UVA, money won't be an issue.  $20k only covers half of the budget.  I would choose UVA is the best choice, rankings, prestige and such.  ND is not worth it.

Spineless Liberal:

Here is my advice.  Send a written request about getting the money back.  They will accept that.

Go anybody BUT Hillary 2008!!

Syracuse - More nationally known.  Larger alumni network in many states.

Better sports Football and Basketball

if the money isn't close b/w Iowa and Notre Dame....I'd heavily lean toward Iowa
Why would you lean toward Iowa, if you don't mind my asking? And the money is weird, because ND offered me more but I pay instate at Iowa, so I've got $22,500/yr at ND and full tuition at Iowa.


I agree that Iowa is the heavy favorite with the money issue.  If I had your option between Iowa and ND, I would pick Iowa.  I think that the rankings will NOT matter (although Iowa is slightly higher).In addition, the fact you know Iowa so well is to your favor.  Iowa places well in Chicago, St. Louis and any other major Midwest city.  Iowa is a little older and typically has a larger class.  This translates into a larger alumni network across the country.  That network is important for finding the "right" fit for you.  I am not sure what type of law you are interested in but Iowa has a great program for all different types and the faculty are among the best (not to say ND doesn't have some good ones).  Also, the fact that you will have no financial problems coming out of Iowa is  great. 

Notre Dame is a good school, it is very conservative and traditional.  I am not sure how your politics will play into this issue.  It is just something to think about. 

Iowa sports have been much more fun to watch lately.   ND football has not been great at all!

Pitt, not worth the money at ND.

In mxpocc's defense, he got into Iowa which is number 20 in the country.  That is f-ing impressive.  That is the current best.  A damn good counterpoint.

Because mxpocc wanted to do a little yield protection  ;)  Wanted no dings

I sent in my withdrawal with a big scholarship that should help.  Good Luck.  This year should be better than the last, applications are down a bit.  You have a shot, email some of the profs and sell yourself to the school.  Dean Andrews is a nice person, she is the wife of the Congressman and a good professor from what my good friend tells me.  Get in touch with her and sell yourself and play the "dance".
