Re: Brooklyn Sans $ vs. Chicago-Kent and Santa Clara with $$

Going to Brooklyn with no scholarship means you leave school $180,000 in debt without much shot at the IP jobs you think you want. Don't do it.

I would also add a few things:

1) Go to whichever of the other two schools is cheaper after scholarship as opposed to which gives you more money in dollars.
2) Geography should not be a primary consideration in choosing a law school except to the extent that it has to do with where you want to practice. Since these are all "regional" schools that will mainly place locally, I guess where you want to live after you graduate matters. But while you're in law school your life is largely going to revolve around school (or at least it better if you want to come out of those schools with any shot at a job). The best thing is a pleasant area with all conveniences nearby allowing you to focus. If you're planning to party a lot while attending a T2 school you're basically wrecking your future. So don't think about whether Santa Clara is somewhere you want to live, but rather whether the markets where it places are places you want to live.
3) Cost of living is also going to be much lower in Chicago and presumably Santa Clara as well, which will also lower your debt.

Kent is well known for having a very strong IP program.
