Ok, so I'm strongly leaning towards Temple, but I figured I'd tempt fate by seeing if anyone could convince me to the contrary.
OSU with no scholarship & out-of-state tuition, or Temple with a full-tuition scholarship?
My interest is in public interest law, and definitely not big law. With that in mind, and with the state of the economy looking pretty bad, I'm trying to keep my debt-load to a minimum. Also, I visited Temple this weekend for ASD and was very impressed with just about everything (faculty, clinical programs, the trial advocacy program, etc).
But, then again, I realize that OSU has a better national reputation (at least according to USN). But is the difference in USN ranking (~32 vs ~60, or something like that) worth an extra $32,000 a year (an extra 96K overall - yikes!)
Ok, as I write this, Temple is starting to look like the better choice (by far), but I guess I don't want to leave any stone unturned in considering my options. Any thoughts or advice?
