Higher ranked school vs. lower ranked school but scholarship

Postby lawbound22 » Mon Apr 13, 2015 3:57 pm

Hi everyone, I am wondering what everyone's thoughts are on attending a higher ranked school that is crazy expensive versus a lower ranked school with a full tuition scholarship. The schools I'm thinking of are Northwestern or Chicago, but they are very expensive whereas Kent would be free.

Thanks for the feedback! :)

In order to receive the best feedback in this forum, please provide as much of the following information in your original post as possible:

-The schools you are considering
-The total Cost of Attendance (COA) of each. COA = cost of tuition + fees + books + cost of living (COL) + accumulated interest - scholarships. Here is a helpful calculator.
-How you will be financing your COA, i.e. loans, family, or savings
-Where you are from and where you want to work, and other places where you have significant ties (if any)
-Your general career goals
-Your LSAT/GPA numbers
-How many times you have taken the LSAT
