For those who want to work in the corporate law world, law school tuition is a very good investment, and paying higher tuition at a better school will definitely pay off.
For those of us who are committed to public interest law, a scholarship means the difference between golden-handcuffs and actually practicing in the area we want. There is a reason so many people want to go into public interest law when they enter law school, but almost noone goes into it when they get out. That reason is called $150K of debt.
I'll be taking a scholarship.
