Law School Admissions / Re: Scholarship money at a 4T

I turned down the University at Buffalo--SUNY for Appalachian School of Law.

Appalachian gave me a full ride as long as I remain in the top 20% of my class.  That with the VA resident grant for books, means all I have to pay for is my living expenses.  I have been saving up; with the way this looks I could just go through my savings for living expenses and not have to borrow anything for law school.

I am glad that at least a few people donít think I am totally nuts.

Well, I had applied to Golden Gate University, and they
were EXTREMELY slow in processing my application.  About 2-3 weeks ago, I sent in a letter withdrawing my application.

This past Friday, to my surprise, I was accepted to Golden Gate U and received a $48,000.00 scholarship...

This is tempting...hmmmmm...but tuition alone is 11K per year above where I will be going to law school, and I'm going to a 2T...

But 48K is nice...oh well...

Anyone deciding on going to a less than favorable, even bottom rung school, as a result of a nice financial package? 

I have to admit I am doing this.  I am taking the full ride at a 4th tier school over no money at a tier 2.  I cannot justify the huge cost difference.  I know that you should always go to the best school you can get into to (or so people say on this board over and over again with some getting quite nasty about that opinion), but given that I am looking for a career in the education field or in public interest law.  I cannot believe that it will make that much of a difference.  However having an extra 100k in debt to live with will.

I am half way through my MBA program now.  I will be continuing it during law school by taking one class ever summer, and then finishing my thesis and my last class after I get my JD degree.

No real piercings here, but I have a tattoo of two cherries on my shoulder.

I really liked:

Law School for dummies and Law school without fear.

Don't feel bad I looked too  ;D

They posted the info on the LSAT web site about two weeks ago, we have already posted signs all over our school for students who are intrested.  ( My school is in driving distance from DC)

A friend of mine went to the one last year and got several bites from schools that would be intrested in her as well as some invitations to visit.  I know she found it VERY helpful to go.

Where do you want to practice after law school?  That should really help to make up your mind.
