It would help to know a little about your goals. Suffolk is certainly the "safe" option, although you will run into some amount of debt with COL in Boston. I hear that Sufflolk is "well respected" in the Boston area, but it has a HUGE class, and there are not that many jobs, since t-14, BU, BC, Northeastern, etc. place ahead of Suffolk for high paying positions. Let us know about your goals so we can give you some better advice.

I'm not really interested in 'big law' or anything like that, not like i'd have a shot anyways. I'm more interested in governmet work or immigration law or something along those lines...not sure if that narrows it down at all or provides some more help

The stipulations for the suffolk scholly is to maintain a 3.0 gpa. And unfortunately I didn't apply to temple, kind of regret it now.

And just so you know, Suffolk uses a 3.0 curve. So your scholarship basically translates into a top 50% scholarship.
