I'm in the exact same situation, and I think it's going to come down to these two options unless my negotiations with UIUC are successful. Obviously I have no idea about your financial situation but keep in mind that cost of living at WUSTL is a predicted $20,000 per year. So for me, debt is unavoidable. The question really is how much debt. Then again, you have to add on the $20,000 a year to Michigan too. It's really impossible to go to law school for free unless you get a stipend.
Who has predicted WUSTL COL at $20,000 a year? Have they ever been to St. Louis?
Sorry, what I meant was cost of attendance. Cost of living is prdicted $12,000, which I still think is a bit high. My source is http://www.top-law-schools.com/washingt ... chool.html
