What area of the country do you want to practice? Are you instate for UNC? What are the stipulations of these scholarships? What are your career goal, do you want PI, Biglaw, gov't... You need to give more info.

Out of state for UNC...Don't quite know about law specialty yet but I originally planned on becoming a real estate attorney, I am also thinking of IP or corporate securities...as i was a finance major in undergrad. I would PREFER to be somewhere warm, I grew up in MI and I do not want to go back, although my father is an attorney and owns a successful practice. I would like to practice in Charleston or somewhere in NC. Possibly in Chi town.

The only stipulations of the scholarships are that I have to keep a 2.5 for Wayne and 3.0 for Loyola and possibly also for DePaul. I think MSU said mine would go up if I kept a 3.0.

As far as career goals go I ultimately want be a real estate developer later on down the road, but I would like to use law as the medium to get into the industry. Obviously it is too early to decide what kind of law I want to practice for the rest of my life, but these are my tentative plans. Who knows what I will decide after/during law school.

Do you know what the curve is at Loyola? I think you should go to either UNC or Loyola depending on how confident you are that you can retain that scholarship.
