wondering what others would do...

In terms of goals, I'm open to various types of law, including public interest. Not big law focused. Nor regionally.

Thank You

Fordham at full price only worth considering if you're trying to get into NYC Biglaw, which you said you aren't, so cross that off your list. The other 3 schools are regional, so the the choice is where you want to live for the next 10 years.

I also think that given their rankings, location and job prospects, you should choose on price alone between IU-B and Iowa, with IU-B in-state almost certainly being the better option.

The only question then is whether you want to be 60k in debt working in the Midwest or 90k in debt working in the southeast. I think this calculus is what accounts for IU-B's popularity on the poll.

I was discussing IU-B job prospects in another thread (link below), which has some helpful links regarding job opportunities.
