All things being equal with no geographical preference I would recommend going to the cheaper option, which I assume is Case? Unless you mean 30k/yr, in which case is definitely UC.

End cost would be: $24,000 Case; $61,000 UConn. I have a geographical preference for the East Coast, though not an enormous preference.

I'd say go with Case. I remember reading on TLS that Case has some leverage (some) in the East.

It is a ton cheaper.

plus, we could be potential classmates! haha. Case is option number two right now for me lol

You're not going into an enormous amount of debt at either, however, unless you have an unrelenting desire to work in Connecticut I'd recommend saving the 37k and taking Case. Keep in mind if the scholarship they offered you has a GPA contingency this is definitely something to consider, as you might lose the scholarship and stuck at Case paying full bill.

I've heard some disheartening things about Case recently:
(1) Bar pass rate slippage
(2) Tarnishing reputation
(3) People stealing books from the Library a la "the paper chase"
Etc...

I can't go to the ASD, though I really do need to check Cleveland out.

And I am also concerned about the scholarship being GPA contingent. How hard is maintaining a 3.15 in LS?
