good Q, Multiple LSAT Taker (& I wish you luck on your LSATs)Lots of people in exactly your position 3 and 4 years ago were sold a bill of goods about WSU. They were told: Wayne was v. inexpensive, it was the best school in Mich after U of M, it was about to break into T2, etc. Then the school significantly increased tuition (to hire more profs to improve fac/stud ratios to get into T2). It created a scholarship program to raise GPA/LSAT, also to get into T2. (Students in this program not only get reduced tuition, but also get other privileges denied even to students who work hard and get good grades. A caste system). The result is that the average Wayne State student today pays a lot more in tuition, so that a few high LSAT/GPA students can go to cocktail receptions with big firm lawyers and leave the school debt free. Nice.As I've said in other posts, there used to be something idealistic about the school. Students could leave w/ low debt and do the things they came to law school to do. That is all becoming harder.The school has sold its soul to US News, and lost. It is now deep in T3, way behind where it was when this whole adventure started. I hope it returns to where it started, but 17 places in US News is a lot of ground to make up. The only way to make up that many places is an infusion of new $. Will it come from students? (more tuition hikes) Alums? (they are still being dunned for the new building that isn't close to being financed) The university? (not likely--w/ declining enrollments)I could go on, but I'd just be repeating other posts. Best of luck making a hard decision. Assemble all of the information you can--from school visits, admissions people, lawyers in the community, newspaper stories about the schools, etc. My posts are just a few 'data points' among many. You get to decide how much credence they deserve.Wherever you go--if you work hard, you will develop skills that will help you for a lifetime. Good luck on your career.
