I agree you should be cautious, and I'd encourage you to work for a solo in the Appalachian part of the state before diving in. I did for a couple years in college and it was hell.
I disagree with OSU students being better off in Cleveland. I think that Case and CSU have a pretty strong hold on the market.
I also wanted to add some insight on Case. In terms of your scholarship I would be fairly certain you could negotiate that up to a full ride (or at least very close). In terms of employment, being at Case is a little rough, however there are students getting jobs. Jones Day, Squire Sanders, Baker and most of the other big firms in Cleveland have hired Case 2Ls for this summer. There are other students that have lined up jobs at big time firms outside the city as well. That being said it is very selective. Maybe 20-25 kids in the 2L have bigger firm jobs at the moment. The odds obviously are not great, but it is possible to succeed at Case.
