And, just in case you're still considering Akron: what are the requirements at each school to keep the scholarships? Last I heard, Akron had pretty high requirements.

Last I heard, Akron had pretty high requirements.This is true. Akron's renewal standards are ridiculously high--a 3.3 cum. GPA is required to retain the full scholarship for each additional year. To my uninitiated brain, that didn't sound too terrible at first, but A's literature lists that as ~90th percentile. I am going to venture out on a limb and risk sounding a braggart by saying I had hoped to fall at the top 10% of A's class, but it will be nice to not have that additional pressure.In the last several days, it's become clearer to me that this isn't even really a decision. Not only are ND's employment prospects much better (which, honestly, I will take any advantage I can get in the current market), BUT ALSO--attending ND at any level has always been a pipe dream of mine. It wasn't possible for undergrad (I was too uninvolved in HS despite good scores/grades), and honestly, I hadn't thought it possible for law, either. (167 LSAT but a low ugpa of 3.4--I guess my PS was kick-ass?)Now that I've gotten past the initial accept-notice shock, I've highly warmed to the idea of attending. I do believe I'm going to call their admissions dept tomorrow and have a chat with them.Not sure if this is the best way to continue asking advice, but I'd rather not start a new thread--anyone have any advice for coming up with $35,000/year?
