Cardozo v. Arizona

Postby Shonic » Tue Feb 23, 2010 7:40 pm

Alright so I've received good scholarship offers from both of these schools, with nothing else from other schools really worth noting. Arizona's giving me 20k/year while Cardozo's offering me a free ride. I haven't really decided where I want to practice yet, so what would you guys recommend?

I just have to maintain a 3.3 to keep Cardozo's scholarship for the three years while Arizona's just said "good academic standing", for what it's worth. Money's fairly important, but by no means a deal breaker. I'd pretty much have to take out loans to pay for everything more or less, so for sure the less I'd have to pay for an education the better.

Haven't updated my stats here in a while but I have a 166 LSAT score and a 3.6 GPA from UW-Madison. I'm on the WL at Boulder and Boston University, but I don't want to wait too long on those before making a final decision or at least putting a deposit in.

Like I said I don't really know where I want to practice, but so far I'm thinking Boston or Denver.

Cardozo and Arizona won't get you there. You really need to pick between NYC and Arizona.

edit: nvm. Contingent scholarship = go to Arizona.
