Like Florida Guy said, thanks Eegah for going to Case!  Now could you just pass on that SLU scholarship to me?  ;D  I think that is how it should work... you turn down a school/money, and you can pass it off to someone on the board.  Sounds fair to me! 
BTW, congrats again-- you have some major accomplishments!

I think i have the same kind of problem that many 0Ls have. I'm in at Santa Clara, now T3, and also at Villanova, which has moved up a bit this year. Santa Clara gave me a lot of money, villanova hasn't come through with any money yet. This is tough. i think that villanova has a better name, rep, etc. and the degree may travel better than one from SCU, but it is hard to turn down a good deal at Santa Clara.

choices, choices... I think if villanova gives me a decent amount, i can make it work there. If they get all tight-fisted, then i will be chillin in silicon valley come august.

I can see myself in either place, but i would prefer the east coast. But i don't think i could do 42K/yr in loans. I would rather relocate and have to work out west for a few years and then come back to the east coast when i am more established as a good attorney. But if all things were equal, it would be Villanova.
