I have full ride scholarships to both Iowa and Minnesota with a $11,000 grant for living expenses at both schools. I am considering attending Iowa as my girlfirend has a job there and not in Minneapolis. After graduation I would like to live in Des Moines, Omaha, Kansas City, St.Louis or Milwaukee. I would be okay with living in the Twin Cities or Chicago but they are not my first choice. I will hvae only around $30,000 in debt from undergrad so I don't need to make biglaw money right away but I would still like to secure a decent job. Am I making a mistake?

Then I certainly would not feel bad choosing Iowa. You want to live there and have personal reasons for choosing it. With such low risk, might as well go where you will be happy and where you hope to end up. You are in a good situation.

yeah, I mean, if u really just wanna work in Iowa and don't have any biglaw/clerk/gov/academic/anything prestigious aspriations, its fine, but just added 3 or more points to your LSAT and you'r looking at some good offers from T14 schools. You may want to consider retaking in June and reapplying if u can increase your score.

Chicago, Kent (25K per year, no stipulations)
Indiana, Bloomington (20K per year, no stipulations)
U of Illinois (1/2 scholarship, no stipulations)
U of Iowa (Full Ride Scholarship)
U of Minnesota (Full Ride, 2.5 stipulation)
U of Wisconsin ($18,000 per year)
U of Michigan
If I had those stats, I'd blanket the bottom T-14s.
