Tough call here, especially if you want to stay in Cinci. At the end of the day, however, I'd go with Chase. I don't know what your financial situation is, but I would take the money. The fact is that if you do well at either school, you will find a job; if you do not do well, it will be more difficult. A friend of mine had a similar Chase scholarship, but I think the GPA minimum was lower (like a 2.3 or something), so you might want to check that out. Also, he told me that Chase no longer has a required curve for first-year students, so your chances of keeping the money are good. Three more things - the attition rate at Chase is not as high as you think, and a lot of those people are the part-time students who could not handle a full-time job, law school, and a family. I don't think UC has a night program, so its attrition rate will be lower. Finally, in this economy, you want to carry as little debt as possible. There is nothing worse than having to take a job you don't want simply because you are $75,000 in the hole. Finally, my friend said he really enjoyed the people at Chase, and that he enjoyed his experience there.
