Any stips to the scholly? (i.e. have to be top 1/3 or you lose it)
Only stips are that you maintain a 3.5 GPA or you are removed from the program (but you can still have the full-ride as long as you are in good academic standing). I'm looking at this along with a full ride to Kent and 32k/yr to Loyola, with other schools to hear from, but I know Kent was already mentioned in this thread. Looking to stay in the Midwest region (I'm from Michigan).
Kent isn't the greatest school, but if you have a full ride there, you should definitely take it above MSU. MSU's reputation is really TTT. Kent is at least in a decent-sized market, and it actually has some biglaw connections, and a decent reputation among small and mid-sized firms in Chicago. MSU is just garbage. Look at their employment score on LST...it's 30%. My brother's friend went to MSU and graduated like three years ago and just finally found a JD-preferred compliance job making like $40K/year. After three years of compounding interest...and sporadic doc review projects.
