Do you want to work anywhere in particular or have specific career goals?

Edit: if you don't, UMN sounds pretty good. Instate tuition is quite low, right?

Two points. The first is that none of these schools are destination schools. You should probably go to whichever school is near where you want to live. You don't pick up and move across country to go to Minnesota. You do that for a T14 school. All the rest are local schools.

But, the fact that you got money from Miami is big. Like I said, these are all local schools. So you shouldnt pay a dime for anyone of them, and anyone who does doesn't know what they are getting themselves into. So, since you seem interested in making a big life move to attend a regional law school, I would follow that path to Miami and take the money. Frankly, despite the "recovery", none of these schools provide enough oomph to get you a job that supports yourself with the loans.

I wouldn't go to Miami for anything less than a full ride. It's in a highly desirable market for people from T25 ish schools and is not the best local school that sends grads to that market (UF). Furthermore, the FL market is in the crapper.

Also $5 says your scholarship comes with stips?
