Accepted to Case (10K scholly) and Cleveland Marshall (10k scholly). I want to live in NE Ohio after I graduate. Is it worth it to go into more debt to attend Case? It appears I'll be on the hook for $120k at Case vs. $54k at CSU.
Thanks for the input!

Being from the area I would say go to CSU on the cheap. Every firm in cleveland, big or small, has a bunch of CSU grads and all but 1 judge I have met in Cleveland has been a CSU grad. I wouldn't pay 70k extra for Case, I just don't think the opportunities are any better.

I would say go to Case. You say you want to live in NE Ohio after graduation, but you never know where life is going to take you... and if it does take you outside of Ohio, you are much better off with a degree from Case. No one has even heard of Cleveland State. Thats' just my opinion.

I'm a big fan of Case, but I voted Marshall. If you are really set on just NE Ohio, then there's no reason to take on 66k more in debt. If you have even the slightest inkling of leaving the region, then I'd have voted Case.

Case is too damned expensive. However, have you tried using your Case scholarship to get more money out of C-M? To be sure, they know they're much cheaper, but you should be able to get a little more cash out of them.

I would say Cleveland State. If you wanted to work outside of Ohio, then I would say Case because they have pretty good placement elsewhere, particularly DC; however, since you want to stay in the area I would say you'll do great at CSU.

If you have your heart set on Cleveland Biglaw (Jones Day, Baker Hostetler, Squires Dempsey, etc...) then you want to go with Case. If you're looking for mid-size or small firm work in NE Ohio, then you're probably better off saving your money and going to C-M. I agree with a previous poster - you should see if you can get a better scholarship from C-M.
