I won't argue about the merits of the school, and I certainly have things that I wish had been different. But, in this market, most law school graduates have trouble finding a job, no matter what city they're in or school they went to. While a high-ranked school certainly will help, it isn't necessarily going to get you a job. It really just depends on what's important to you. If you know exactly what you want to do/where you want to live, then you should think about a law school specific to that. But if graduating with less/no debt and still having a law degree is appealing, then take the scholarship. Law school rank notwithstanding, I've had a great experience. And, although it wouldn't have mattered to me when I was looking at schools, law review grade-on is a 3.5.
One thing I was intrigued by in Tulsa was that they had a genuine full ride available to people with 159/3.4 or something like that - full ride includes tuition and sizable living stipend (includes room, board, parking and books). They say law school grades are a crap shoot, but it cant be a total crap shoot since there are objective answers to exam questions and if you studied enough and you are not dumb you will get straight As. I think magna or summa from UofT gotta be worth something. If it was me (and I was not married and settled for good in Virginia) I would apply and try to get this full ride. I would then become a cloisterer for three years and study day and night. At the end of the tunnel could be a likely well paid job and no debt.
