I am in the same EXACT situation. In at MSU with 50% and Catholic U at 50%

Also in a LSU with in state tuition granted (i am from FL so in state tuition was a scholarship award), plus 25% in addition to that.

Decisions, decisions. ... TERRIFIED of the cold weather. Seems like something small to be worried about- if you have grown up in the cold- but for a FL girl like me, anything below 40 and im miserable.


Good to hear someone else is in the same boat! As I've been hearing back from other schools, I've DEFINITELY ruled out Catholic. Half scholly at Catholic is a dent in what it's going to cost me overall, and it's not worth it.

As for Michigan State, it's second to last on my list of schools. The money is nice, the cost of living is cheap, but I don't want to live in Michigan. I talked to a current student and they insisted it wasn't a regional school, but regardless I just don't want to live in Michigan, even if it's for 3 years.

Yes it seems to me we are in similar boats. Saw your post on my MU thread. Catholic out for me. Like you said, not worth it.

Does anyone have anything to say about whether one school is better for public interest?


Class of 2011

MSU 2.5% of graduates in employed in public interest.
Catholic 1.9% of graduates in employed in public interest.

It is important to keep in mind that more than 50% of the students from these schools couldn't even land a document review job.



Anyone can land a doc review job. I've seen little old ladies with no grad degree doing doc review. It's more likely that a) the students that did doc review reported it as non jd required or b) students were just holding out hope that they could get something else before they signed on with a staffing agency for doc review work.

Way to characterize my law school decision without knowing anything about me. I'm a 3L at a T25 on half scholarship and doing an Article III clerkship next year. But at least 60% of my class is in real trouble. Imagine if you went to one of these schools? Yeah, it's that bad. But feel free to tell me how little I know. You 0Ls know it all.

This. Love the 0L special snowflake syndrome btw.

As a side note, congrats on the clerkship ND, I remember talking to you after OCI and I would have been really pissed if I was in your shoes after OCI was over given your stats.

Thanks, I appreciate it. OCI was brutal, I'm glad I got a "second chance" through the clerkship. And in any case, I wanted to clerk anyhow so I'm pretty happy. Still trying to stay around these forums to talk some sense into 0Ls.

I hope your 3L search goes well, I feel for all of you guys that were no-offered, it's really horrible and there's no explanation for it. People always say personality matters with no-offers, but the people I know were great people.

I wrote this up last week for the catholic acceptance/denial thread, but I think you could substitute "Catholic" with Michigan State and it would be just as germane.

LSU for that person who mentioned it. Retake for the other. My cousin is graduating next semester from MSU and I'm worried for her. It's bad.

Im a liking LSU. Definitely not retaking the LSAT because there is no need for that. I did well.

You read this thread, yes?

You would be crazy to go to Catholic. Its the 4th best school in a saturated market. Less than half their grads become lawyers.

You would be crazy to go to MSU. Its the 3rd best law school in a state that is struggling. Less than half their grads become lawyers.

Both schools scholarship stipulations make it more likely than not you will lose your scholarship and end up over paying.


Wait 3rd? What's the second best then, Michigan? We all know #1 is Cooley but that goes without saying.

This. Don't let the rankings fool you. I'm from the murder mitten and can confidently say that employers in Michigan still view Wayne State as an extremely good school and love to hire from it if they can't land UofM grads.

However, Wayne State still isn't a good investment unless you've got a full ride and strong ties in-state (and never want practice outside of Southeast Michigan).

DON'T LISTEN TO THESE HATERS. GO TO CATHOLIC!

FIRST OFF CATHOLIC HAS THE DC MARKET, AND THERE'S NOT A LOT OF COMPETITION THERE. MOST GEORGETOWN GRADS TRY TO GET OUT OF DC, AND UVA STUDENTS REALLY JUST ALL WORK IN CHARLOTTESVILLE WHICH IS 1 OF THE MAJOR LAW MARKETS IN THE US.

ALSO CATHOLIC IS VERY GOOD ACROSS THE US, BECAUSE THERE ARE CATHOLIC PEOPLE EVERY WHERE SO WHEN THEY SEE THAT RESUME WITH THE BIG C, THEY'RE GOING TO THINK THIS IS A GOOD CHURCH GOER AND A GREAT ADDITION TO OUR FIRM.

ALSO, THERE'S ALWAYS A GOOD CHANCE THE RECRUITER IS DYSLEXIC AND WILL CONFUSE CATHOLIC FOR COLUMBIA SO YOU'RE REALLY GETTING TO GO TO A TOP 5 WITH SCHOLARSHIP $.

Don't go to either of these schools, unless you have a solid repayment option available (help from parents/relatives, money in the bank, real estate, etc.). Since you don't like the idea of Michigan, you already cancelled out MI yourself.

I do know someone that is from IL, went to a school in IN for UG, went to MSU for law school, just took the NY Bar, passed it and now lives out there so it is doable. She was severely involved in Moot Court and so on though.

Don't go to ANY school based on a specific interest.

yo f off bro. everyone always gives the same advice about everything. there's no law school secret. it's wide published every where on every forum in every magazine in every newspaper.

if somebody still can't figure it out, it's called darwinism. it is better to let them crumble and let a big business get the $.

We were all 0L snowflakes at one point. I tried the law school route, decided for multiple reasons to take the financial hit now and reconsider law school at a later point (when I could be more selective about my choices) and will pursue a masters degree now. Don't be mean to them. They are just idealistic like I was.

Stop being a damn brat. Both of these schools suck. Hard. A 3.0 gpa stipulation is median and there is a 50% chance you will LOSE that scholarship. MSU is regional. As in Michigan. Not even the Midwest. It is one of the worst law schools in the Big 10 even when you combine the two new Big 10 programs: Maryland and Rutgers. The only good thing about MSU is that it is based in Lansing, so they have SOME connection with state government opportunities. Otherwise, the school sucks hard.

I don't care about the intent, I was critiquing the execution. It was weak. Try harder next time or keep it to yourself brobro.

Oh stop it. Both you and Ashley are wrong. For people not interested in Chicago, MSU would be a solid option for the Midwest. Obviously, I mean solid only if you want to stay in the area and not just temporarily transplant there.

Now if you wanted to talk about MSU Athletics, as a fellow Big 10 alum, we could discuss that, but I think your assessment is just false. OP shouldn't go to MSU or Catholic for the reasons that he already mentioned, plus for the reasons that some people mentioned already.

I know someone that is from the Midwest, graduated from Cooley and works in the legal industry. She probably doesn't have what TLS would consider a solid job, but she's working for a nice company that made it possible for her to go from Chicago to NY.
