I am essentially down to three schools. Each with their own pros / cons
I am ok with living in either of the three cities for the rest of my life
I want to do something in international law
I will probably end up in politics at some point if I go to Seattle or Cleveland
American - no scholarships- Net Cost: 39,000
Pro: Incredibly strong International law rep. Location in DC makes employment prospects high
Con: Incredibly high cost w/o scholarships
Case Western - 9,000 scholarship - Net Cost: 25,000
Pros: I was born in Cleveland and love the city (I know odd for someone to say they love Cleveland) Pretty decent Int. law rep, could do intellectual property and work for cleveland based IMG (sports agency). Placement in other states fairly high for ranking.
Cons: Cleveland is an economically contracting city where job prospects will suffer.
Seattle University - 15,000 - Net Cost: 18,000
Pro: Location in Seattle is amazing. Cheap cost
Con: Employment prospects low outside the state. Not a good rep for international law
Let me hear your opinion
How big do finances play in your decision. If finances were a big concern, then go Case or Seattle (prob Case, since, being from cleveland as well, COL is cheaper here than what I would imagine it would be in Seattle.)
