Arkansas, St. Louis or Tennessee?

Arkansas, St. Louis or Tennessee?
« on: April 06, 2007, 11:52:45 AM »
I'm down to these three.  I have scholarships offered from each: Tennesee $4,000 per year, St. Louis $20,000 per year, and Arkansas $12,000 for the first year and $6,000 for the next two (b/c residency is pretty much guaranteed after the first year).  As it stands, the cost goes up with the rank.  I'd gladly live in each area.  Give me your opinions!


Also, how significant is an additional $45,000 in debt?  That is potentially the difference between Tennessee and Arkansas.

Agreed.  I visited and was EXTREMELY impressed.  I turned down a lot of t1 schools to attend UT and I have not doubted my decision for a moment.

Nope, not until the fall.  Have you visited UT?

PS. If you haven't visited, there is some decent info here on UT http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=99417#99417

Yea, I visited a few weeks ago.  I really liked it.  The only real concern I have with it is the cost.  I'm out of state.  Their residency requirements are very unclear meaning if I were not to ever get residency, it would cost a lot more.

Well, I only wish I was getting 10 grand a year with in-state tuition.  That would be an easy decision.  I'm not so lucky...only 4 grand per year with no guarantees of ever getting in-state.
