I get that. I've lived in California my entire life, and am not at all tied to coming back here. I'm not terribly concerned with the WHERE, as I want to make my decision based on the school, scholarship, and location together as a package. The schools I've chosen are all in locations I've thought about moving to.
3.57 (UCLA)/159, not a URM
Have you visited these schools / the cities they feed their graduates into? Why would you relocate and leave whatever life you have for mediocre job prospects in an over-saturated field? Why do you want to go to law school?
3.57 isn't horrible, but your LSAT is really holding you back. You should definitely consider retaking the LSAT and getting into some better schools / getting better scholarship offers.
I have visited most of the cities I mentioned, but I really only provided the list to show the POSSIBLE choices I have. I will be visiting all schools I put deposits down on. Right now, at schools I have gotten into, the most attractive option is MSU at about 8.5K tuition after scholarship, and it is the only one I have given a deposit. I have family in Michigan and Ohio, and while I am not counting on it, I do know that they place some students in Illinois. When I hear from UCLA, Davis, and a few others, my options will become much clearer.
To qualify my situation some more, I am not a recent college graduate. I've worked four years in public education and the situation is getting worse with budget cuts/standardized testing/a million other issues I'm sure you are aware of. It's not something I want to do for the rest of my life. I'm not going to try to answer the last question, because anything I write on an internet forum is going to be attacked by somebody. It is something I have spent years thinking about. I am well aware of the risks.
