I have a 3.92 GPA from Temple Univ. (Journalism major) and a 165 LSAT. I knew I couldn't go to school full-time this fall, but applied to Temple's part-time program. I got in and they gave me a great scholarship package. ($10-15k TOTAL debt.) But I'd really like to go to a Top 10 or at least a top tier school. (Plus, I'd rather not go where I got my undergrad.)
The only real issue is debt. Is the name/reputation of the school worth the extra debt? I'm not sure what kind of law I'd want to practice, so would something like Temple possibly hold me back? And, one last question!, do the top tier schools usually offer financial aid?
