The Rager's Cycle Is Done: Who Wants To Take A Crack? (WUSTL vs UIUC vs SLU)

Ok, so here's my choice: UIUC costing me about $13K/year after scholarship, WUSTL costing me about $20K/year after scholarship, and I'm a finalist for a full ride to SLU.  I currently live in St. Louis.  I'd like to practice in the midwest, preferrably in Chicago, secondarily anywhere between Chicago and St. Louis.  I have a preliminary interest in health law, which SLU apparently has the "best health law program" in the nation.  So, YOU MAKE THE CALL!

What are the scholarship requirements, if any?

I'd do the WUSTL, if I were you.   :D

I don't know WUSTL yet, but UIUC's you have to maintain a 2.0 and they've said nobody has ever lost a scholarship there.  Why do you think WUSTL?

Lobstah!

If you want health law and you're good with Chicago or St. Louis take the full ride dude. No question.

Oops, for some reason I thought you meant University of Indiana. 

My bad!

I don't know, to be honest.  I don't know the Midwestern law schools as well as the East Coast schools.

My guess though is that UIUC places almost as well as Chicago, if not better, due to its location.  Combined with your scholarship offer, and how they said that nobody has ever lost the scholarship, I'd say that this is s safe bet for you.

I wish I could offer you more help, but I don't know much about the midwest schools. Hopefully somebody else will help the poor ol' chap!
