CSU or no go?

Postby MVNU » Sat Dec 28, 2013 5:07 pm

I'm currently a sophomore ungrad in Ohio. I took a 2 year law class in high school and I found it very intriguing. I also competed in mock trial and a moot court competition. I'm thinking about applying to law school when I graduate. I want to get an accounting or finance job in cleveland and then go to Cleveland State Law part time. Therefore, I won't have much debt at all, and CSU has good placement in Cleveland. However, Cleveland is a dying city. And I don't know exactly what type of law I want to get into. Is it worth it for me to go this route? Opinions are appreciated.

No. You should go somewhere with better job placement stats.

What about Ohio State? It's a lot of debt though going there.

I'm open to hearing all options, I'm only a sophomore. I just considered those 2 as my most cost efficient and logical options. No school in Ohio seems to have good placement stats.

I think, though I could be wrong these days, that Case Western gives out a lot of scholarship money with low to no stipulations. I'm pretty sure they are desperate to keep their numbers somewhat respectable. Anyways, if you want to work in Cleveland, I think that would probably be a better option assuming you could keep the debt at a respectable level.
