I lived in DC for a while and LOVED it, but there are so many law schools there. Michigan terrifies me because I feel like it just keeps getting more desolate every year. But both schools seem like good options, aside from those factors.
I'm not planning on doing big law: I want to go into public interest/advocacy.
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.
