How much more will UMN cost? Seems like it is close to a full ride. I would like MN.

Well, according to the USNWR online edition profile for law schools:

Minnesota placed 13 in clerkships, and Iowa placed 9.

Minnesota placed 23.9% of its class in the NLJ250, while Iowa placed 25%, for the class of 2008.

comes down to preferecne of city. Neither school is great at placing into federal clerkships or large firms, but both will get you into local state clerkships and mid/small law with decent grades.
