Where are you from?

What are your ties to each school's region?

What do you want to do after you graduate from law school?

Where do you want to practice?

What is the total cost of attendance for each school?

IU-Bloomington? Or Indianapolis? There is a big difference in the rankings between the two.

Texas if you are from Texas, otherwise one of the other two (assuming you mean IUB, which you probably do if you got a full at Iowa and got into Texas).

Curious...

What if OP wasn't from Texas, would you still recommend it at sticker?

Just a heads up, anyone who refers to "Indiana" when discussing schools is talking about IU-Bloomington, if they aren't they'll clarify.

Not with the other options, assuming s/he wants to end up practicing in one of the 49 other states that's not Texas.

I am a resident of Missouri and have no ties (literally) to any region of the United States.

It does border Iowa at least, I guess. Would u be cool with working in Iowa? Full tuition is nice, and Iowa is still top30.

Bullshit. You have ties to Missouri, to start.

Where did you go to college? Where do your parents and any siblings live? Where have you worked full time since college? Where did you spend your childhood?

What type of law do you want to practice? Where do you want to practice after graduation? What is the total cost to attend each school?

Of these offers I would probably retake or not go. I think you have to be ok with working in MO and not sure if any of those schools will get you there. If in your research you find that an Iowa degree translates well to MO then I would take that of these three options. But of course retake is always the right answer when you have a high gpa and a so-so LSAT.

They both place ok into Missouri, but it looks like Iowa has a bit steadier placement in Missouri.

Why is WUSTL not an option? That seems like the obvious choice for you.

+1

I really don't understand why people even bother making these threads if they aren't going to share pertinent information.
