Brooklyn ($) vs. UConn

I've narrowed down my decision between BLS with a $30,000 Lyle Scholarship (top 80% stip, opportunity for large increases by finishing in top 10% after 1st year), and UConn (no scholly, but 2 years of instate tuition). I've visited both campuses and, despite being polar opposites in almost every regard, I loved them both. I'm leaning towards Brooklyn as I see myself wanting to practice in Ny state over CT after law school, but I just wanted to hear what the TLS faithful have to say.

I would highly encourage you to retake the LSAT and apply again next year because neither of these schools have very good employment numbers and either way you are investing $80-100k into this education with only about a 50% chance of finding a full-time job on the other end after three years of study. Quite simply, any other choice would be financially irresponsible of you to choose.

These are terrible options. The job prospects from these schools are not worth the massive debt you'll be taking on:

Retake the LSAT and reapply, or don't go to law school.

These options are not good
