Case Western ($$) vs IU-Indy (In-State+$) OPINIONS PLEASE

Postby nick637 » Sat Apr 17, 2010 12:17 pm

TLS,

I have narrowed it down to two schools, total cost of attendance figures are included below

Case Western- 90k (must remain in top 55%)
IU Indy- 65k (must remain in top 33%)

I am interested in doing either criminal law or litigation. I have visited both schools and am in love with Cleveland (for some reason). I would not mind living in Indy for the next ten years or so but would prefer Cleveland due to family connections and familiarity with the area.

If I dont remain in the top 1/3 at IU Indy, total cost would be equal to Case's cost. If I don't remain in the top 55th percent at Case, I fail at life.

Is IU-Indy's cheaper tuition a better option? I feel like I will be happier at Case but I don't know if I would be 25k happier. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have to admit, half tuition at Case is enticing. Anyone else?

Go to case, those scholarship stipulations aren't too bad and the school places better around the board.

Case, by a long shot. Their rankings aren't that different, but Case gives you a lot more placement options after graduation, geographically speaking.

Case for 90k seems pretty good given the alternative. You'll have better exit options from Case, I'd imagine.

Definitely Case. Case gives you Cleveland, NY, DC, and some other areas. IU-Indy gives you Indianapolis....where it is still heavily overshadowed by big brother IUB.
