What is the total cost of living (not just tuition)?

Where are you from?

Where do you want to practice?

If you want to practice in WI you should probably go to UW. Marquette and UW tend to dominate the WI market. I would attempt to negotiate with UW and try to get at least a small scholarship (5k a year or more). I think I remember reading that UW doesn't normally give scholarships to WI residents, but I know that it does happen. Are your numbers at or above both the GPA and LSAT 75ths?

Additionally, if you go to UW you don't have to take the bar!

Also, for what it is worth I know that UW does provide assistance to some continuing students. Sometimes it is as simple as just asking about it.

Let me know if you have any questions about UW.

Negotiate with that scholarship since those schools are peers. Go to UW in the end though

UW is garbage. See the Illinois bar report on the current state of affairs there.

HYS or fail IMO.
