Agree with everything except the bolded statement.

Depends on your career objectives & location preferences. Did you apply to Wash U? They give pretty generous scholarships and are probably worth considering if you're okay with practicing in the St. Louis area.

WashU is great if you're a splitter with no chance at the T14. This guy is literally T14 secure. Go to Penn, Michigan or Duke man.

I think Michigan is your best bet. You'll need at least top 10% at MSU to land a job. I said a job, not a biglaw job.

This is just an ignorant statement.

That being said, go to Michigan.

I received $40,000/year from Washington & Lee, which is close to a full ride. W&L is much higher ranked than MSU. Does this change anything?

I'd still go with Michigan. And the W&L scholarships come with stipulations, don't they?
